Heritage of Cebu Monument

The Heritage of Cebu Monument features some of Cebu’s important heritage sites and events. Artist Eduardo Delos Santos Castrillo designed and built this tableau (made of concrete, bronze, brass and steel); with Government officials and from donations of private individuals and organizations it was completed on December 8, 2000.

“The scenes depicted in the Heritage Monument are the baptism of Rajah Humabon, a procession of the Santo Nino, a Roman Catholic mass, and the Battle of Mactan between Lapu-Lapu and Ferdinand Magellan. The persons depicted in the monument include the late president Sergio Osmena Sr., and Blessed Pedro Calungsod.”

It is located in the historic Parian District (downtown Cebu City), which during the Spanish period was home to the residences of the most prominent families in Cebu at that time. It is near Colon Street and if you visit the Heritage Monument, you can also visit the other historical sites nearby in the Parian District, which are the Casa Gorordo Museum and the Yap-San Diego House.
