Cebu is home to the first Filipino hero, Raja Lapu-Lapu. He and his men fought for their land against Spanish invaders in what we call the Battle of Mactan. Today, we memorialize that historic event by erecting a 20-foot bronze statue of the Raja.

Located in the same complex is the Magellan’s Marker.

How to go to Lapu-Lapu Shrine
