The blood compact monument and the actual place where the blood compact actually happened are not located on the same place, but its just a few blocks away from each other. The monument was situated somewhere there is a better view and background. Beside the monument is the ocean suites hotel. While at the actual place where the blood compact happened stands a short history of how it happened.

Located in Tagbilaran City, this shrine depicts the Sandugo or blood compact between the Spanish explorer Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and the chieftain of Bohol Datu Sikatuna on March 16, 1565. The Sandugo was meant to seal their friendship as part of the tribal tradition.

The entire shrine was sculpted by no less than a Boholano National Artist himself, Napoleon Abueva.

Nothing's impressive here but when it comes to history, it's worth visiting.

Blood Compact (Sandugo in Bisaya) was performed here by the Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi and the Bohol chieftain Datu Sikatuna in 1565. It's part of the tribal tradition which was intended to seal friendship or treaty between the Spaniards and Filipinos.

It's where the city nickname "City of Friendship" came from. The festival event in Bohol "Sandugo Festival" is also named after it.

This is often part of the countryside tour. Aside from the statues, you'll also see the view of Panglao Island.

Like Peanut D said, I love traveling because I really wanna learn Filipino Cultures; why different provinces has different dialects, beliefs etc.
I want my son to experience traveling while he is young and I feel this will help him remember Philippine history as well.
It was almost 2 years ago when we visited this place; nothing is so special only statues of men with mugs in their hands.

Good thing, whenever he sees this picture, he still remembers it's blood compact site!

Well what can I say? There's nothing else to see here apart from the statues of men toasting their drinks. That's about it.

Go here in the afternoon when the Sun is not scorching hot. 9728

What is a bunch of statues anyway?
It's part of our history as a nation, which has shaped our identity and influenced where we stand now.
It's not merely a place to take pics but a reminder of what we went through, an avenue to understand and appreciate the sacrifices of our predecessors... If we Filipinos cannot appreciate it, then who will?

Those who do not look back at history run the risk of repeating the same mistakes at present...

Maka-review na nga lang uli ng pagkain...128563
