I loved history class, and coming to this place was an amazing feeling. Datu Lapulapu is our first Filipino Hero. We are very proud on how he depend our land in his time.

Nice to revisit the past to appreciate the present. :-) Historically speaking, Christianity was gained because of this strong man who fought for freedom against intruders in this land.

The statue is cool to see, but it's just a statue. It doesn't do or say anything. Can't get anything from it, like all other statues. The story behind the statue is interesting. The area the statue is located in is awesome. Lots of restaurants and places for a drink. Nightlife and things to see and do.

If you are in Lapu Lapu yo are probably staying in a resort, take a few minutes to see this and get a few pics.....even if you are not.. cool place to go,, look around.. historical.. when I was there, it was quiet, a lot of flowers,, rather peaceful in the immediate area of the statue...

This statue is now standing close to a market selling souvenirs. In the photo he's surrounded by foliage looking proud. Now he's standing in what looks like a car park. What a shame. This is amazing history on Mactan Island. Maybe he'll be moved again. There's nothing written there about the battle or how brave he must have been. Sad let down what a shame. Dianne.

Lots of souvenir vendors. Not much there but is of historical significance. Not many people were there the day we were there. 1/2 hour was more than enough although we were offered an opportunity to rent a boat. Still worth a visit if you are looking to do some touristy sightseeing.

This is what it looks like during day and night. There is market inside the park where you can buy souvenirs and snacks while walking around the place. The market is open at day until night time

Chief Lapu-Lapu (1491-1542) ... was a ruler of Mactan Island , in the Visayas ( Cebu Island Area )

Philippines 🇵🇭 regard him as the first Filipino Hero ... ‘cause he was the first native to resist Spanish colonisation of the Philippines

As on 27th April 1521 ... when explorer Ferdinand Magellan , with 3 boatloads of Spaniards & 20 boatloads of Cebuanos sailed over to Mactan Island , to help a friendly chief , against Lapu-Lapu ( local island Chief ) & his men , armed only with native weapons & shields defended themselves against Spanish Lancers & bows & arrows , as the invading Spaniards & Cebuanos were driven back to their boats ... not before the Spanish Leader Magellan , met death in the hands of Lapu-Lapu

Also at least 14 other Spaniards & around 150 native warriors were killed

Now on Mactan Island , on what is believed to be the exact spot where Magellan fell & died , now stands impressive monuments in honor of the Lapu-Lapu & the gallant explorer Mangellan ... in a large tourist spot ... this park has free entrance
