Magellan and Lapu-lapu Shrine

This is a historical photo from Mactan Island, Cebu city, Philippines during our holiday, some of the photos were not yet posted, so bare with me if my entry is all about our holiday. We just only have 3 weeks but we have visited 5 provinces one of that is Cebu city, it's very exciting and fun experience of discovering the history of each city but so tiring hehehe, especially transferring from one airport to another and very unfortunate to experience flight delay. But all are great we can't complain much , we enjoy all the trip we had.

This is Magellan shrine is a large memorial tower erected in honor of the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. The spot is believed to be the area were Magellan was killed by Lapu-lapu in the Battle of Mactan on 1521. 

The Lapu-lapu Shrine- He is a native chieftain who defeated Spanish soldiers and Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan. 

I just found this plant behind lapu-lapu's shrine garden, looks beautiful isn't it?

The river where Lapu lapu and Magellan fought, was called the Battle of Mactan. The river is only outsdie the gate which is just few steps from Lapu-lapu shrine.
