Right in the middle of the Colon Marker and the Yap Sandiego Ancestral House and Museum is the Heritage of Cebu Monument. It is truly a must see for those who are on a historical field trip here in Cebu.
This site The Heritage of Cebu Monument shows some important events and people starting from the first arrival of the Spaniards which was led by Ferdinand Magellan, from Cebuano historical figures like Lapu-lapu and Raja Humabon, to the spread of Christianism in the province. Even the blessed Pedro Calunsod, has an image built after him.
Cebuano and Spaniards
The Heritage of Cebu Monument was built by National Artist, Edgardo Castrillo. It was opened to the public on December 8, 2000.

Field Trip Boy at the Heritage of Cebu Monument
During our visit here in the Parian, we were also able to take some pictures of the Yap Sandiego Ancestral House and some parts of Colon Street. Unfortunately, the battery of our camera ran out during out visit in Cebu Cathedral, hehehe. Please visit Field Trip Boy in the near future as we feature more must see historical sites here in Cebu City. In the mean time, please enjoy some of my historical escapades here in Cebu.
