Located on the northern part of Mactan Island, the shrine was built in 1866 to commemorate the Battle of Mactan, a fight between the Spanish troops led by Magellan and the Visayans led by Lapu-Lapu.

The Lapu-Lapu shrine is a bronze statue featuring the legendary Filipino Hero wearing his traditional clothing, while holding a sword and shield. A few meters away is the Magellan Monument,a large memorial tower that marks the spot where the Portuguese explorer was killed.
