Let's not prepare ourselves for Michelangelo and St. Peter's Cathedral - this statue is done in a local regional style I have seen throughout the Philippines, and it is handled well. The history behind the Seven Sisters is impressive: the landmark commemorates the coming of...More

Nothing much to see than the statue of nuns. Unless you really love history, there is nothing much to see.

The fence is usually wrapped with plastic, as the locals use the basin as a trash can, due to lack there off at the boulevard. The water in the basin and proper illumination is missing since 2014. However, that gives enough shadow at nighttime, that...More

This is one attraction along the boulevard that you can't take your eyes off. The nuns all have male faces and some serious articulation about each one of them. Being such an unusual statue makes it interesting.

We initially drove by and I saw the monument and thought it was real...had to turn around for another look. Very interesting especially regarding the history of the nuns arrival to the area.

This unexpected statute representing the arrival of nuns in the area in 1904 is naive and funny, almost cartoonesque and makes for an original, if not really artistic, picture on the boulevard. This is at least something to be done on this otherwise uninspiring promenade.
