Dedicated to the first Philippine hero who resisted the Spanish colonization, Lapu Lapu Statue commemorates the nation's fight for independence. Ironically overlooking Magellan's monument, the 20 m (65.5 ft) high bronze statue stands on a white brick pillar and portrays the Visayan chieftain in traditional garb, holding a machete and shield. Explore the surrounding exotic forest and its shrines, breathe in the salty ocean air, and cap off your visit with a stop at the surrounding shops to buy souvenirs. Days can get very hot here, so wear sunscreen and carry extra water with you. To visit Lapu Lapu Statue on your trip to Lapu Lapu, use our Lapu Lapu online trip itinerary planner.
