The famous Spanish navigator and explorer, Magellan, died here. This monument is more than a hundred years old. There are many colonial architecture patterns that can be seen. There are also many vegetation around the monument.
The death of the famous navigator in this place is simply ironic. Is it a real memorial or a real shame to build this monument to commemorate him? The fresco on the top is more about his contribution. From a religious perspective, the locals really believe in Catholicism and contribute to the mission.
The great Magellan died in Lapu Lapu. With a sacred mission and a little negligent, Magellan came from Cebu to Lapu Lapu on Mactan Island, where he was ambushed and killed by Chief Lapu Lapu. This monument commemorates him.
I am always thankful for coming here in sto.niño with my family. We are so blessed and happy.
