Cebu is just one of the 7,106 islands in the Philippines. A city, an island, must be savored slowly, how many events have happened, some of them are imprinted on the hearts of the people, some of them are like passing through the clouds, Parian's sculpture group tries to show the important events in the long history, want to retain the story of the years. We took pictures of the sculpture group on the tour bus because the street was too narrow and the bus did not stop. From the Church of St. Infant, I asked the passers-by with the picture, and then came to this narrow street. Indeed, no matter from that angle, there was no better effect. Next to the monument is the fire brigade, with many fire engines parked nearby. Because of the fireworks on Christmas Eve, the fire brigade has entered the busiest stage of the year.
In a residential area, there are a few vagrants beside... The definition of Museum in the Philippines is quite different from ours. This is a landmark building. Uncle Administrator is very enthusiastic and has been explaining the causes and consequences, that is, I don't remember much.
This monument is actually a great monument, signifying important events in the Philippine history. Somehow, the area itself is no longer that clean and pretty. There were already vandals written at the bottom part of the monument. Sometimes, there are human and animal poops around it. It is also not well-maintained by the local government. That is why I only rated it as 2/5. Nonetheless, this monument is right across the Yap-San Diego Ancestral House, so basically, it would still be worth your time to peek a little on this monument before leaving the Parian area.
Cebu in Lower City, not far from the Church of St. Infant and the Magellan Cross in the classic scenic spots, is accessible on foot. This is a new monument to the history of the Philippines, showing several nodes of the history of the Philippines in relief. In fact, there is nothing special about it.
At noon, in the hot sun, from Cebu Cathedral to Cebu Heritage Monument. I saw only a group of statues in a street garden. I could imagine my disappointment at that time. The Cebu Heritage Monument was completed by Philippine artist Edgardo Castrillo in seven years. It tells about Cebu's history and culture, from Magellan's login to later independence. But I know little about the history of the Philippines, and I have a low sense of identity with the statue. I can only turn around and take pictures and leave.
The Cebu Heritage Monument is a local historic monument. There are many records of the fight against colonial aggression. It has a rich history.
