We were their for a quick tour. Nice place but not so much to see. Plenty of souvenirs shop around but selling quite expensive things especially for foreigners.

Had a lovely day out here, plenty to see and take lots of pictures. You can eat street food or buy souvinirs too. Very hot though so a hat is needed.

It's a nice statue. But nothing I would drive to see. Be aware that the traffic in this area can affect up to an hour to your drive.

A Place of significant local history. Many a story is told of the duel between Magilan and Lapu Lapu.

If you are there anyway have a look. But it is not worth a detour. Clean, some green plants and Lapu Lapu as a statue. That is it.

I wouldn't make a special trip to see this, but we were staying within walking distance of this monument, so worth the time. It may have been more interesting/educational if we had a guide or been on a tour as there is no information available...More
