MANILA, Philippines – The iconic bronze statue of Mactan ruler Lapulapu will be replaced in 2021 by a monument that will more accurately portray the Battle of Mactan, said the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP).

The 66-foot bronze statue of Lapulapu that now stands in the location of the historic battle will be replaced on April 27, 2021, or exactly 500 years after the skirmish where Portugese explorer Ferdinand Magellan was killed.

"It was never mentoned that it was Lapulapu who personally killed or delivered the blow that killed Magellan…. He fell down and was hacked to death. It was a collective effort," explained Escalante.

"Definitely, that monument is already sanctified by time. We will be putting up a museum in that same site and that will be the main attraction and we will place it in the courtyard," said Escalante.
