The Mactan Shrine and Lapu-Lapu Shrine are such a majestic sight at night when all the trees are lit up.

Important historically but a little worn and shabby to be fair. A lovely little Milk Tea shop just to the left of the entrance as you leave.

Whereas the Lapu Lapu statue was surrounded by proud Filipino, the Magellan shrine was empty of people. Pretty telling, if you ask me.

This monument is just next to LapuLapu Statue. It is a memory to the fight of the hero LapuLapu, the leader of the locals and Magelan who want to convince the locals to follow the religion of the Spanish emperators. The monument id poor mainained and the local hero is perfect. The park around is nice and a lot of good fish restaurants
