Historical Sites & Structures
On Mactan, you will find a very historic site called Mactan Shrine. It is the place where the bloody confrontation between Datu Lapu Lapu and Ferdinand Magellan happened in the early 16th century.
At this shrine you can find Lapu Lapu’s statue facing towards the sea with strong and brave expression – symbolizing the bravery and courage to resist foreign domination. To recognize the Portuguese explorer’s contribution to the province’s history, the government of Lapu Lapu City also erected a Ferdinand Magellan Arch located within the shrine.
The shrine is a sort of a garden where you can see green plants, flowering plants and some trees. Inside the shrine you can also find the “Battle of Mactan” painting and other historical symbols and plaques describing the event.
