Nice photo spot but can be quite busy. Do not miss the coffee shop next door, Overgrown Cafe. Best views in Bohol.
There is a wheelchair ramp and a bit of street side parking.
Below and closer to the sea is an arena area.

Nice place to take photos. Good to learn about the history of this. There are souvenirs booths nearby. During my visit, there is someone who takes photo of you and print out and sell it to you at affordable price. Totally worth it!

The Blood Compact Shrine in Tagbilaran City, Bohol, stands as a powerful symbol of peace and friendship. It commemorates the historic blood compact ceremony between Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna, chieftain of Bohol, that took place in 1565. This event marked the beginning of a long-lasting relationship between the Spanish and the Boholanos.

The centerpiece of the shrine is a bronze sculpture depicting the blood compact ceremony. The sculpture, created by renowned artist Napoleon Abueva, stands 30 feet tall and features Legazpi and Sikatuna holding out their arms as blood flows into a common cup.

The Blood Compact Shrine is a beautiful and meaningful place that every visitor to Bohol should experience. It offers a unique opportunity to learn about Philippine history, appreciate Boholano culture, and reflect on the importance of peace and unity.

A well preserved placed that commemorate the historical event happen in Bohol. And I was amazed on this placed, there is also a wonderful plaza below that faces the shoreline. It was fully developed and a beautiful place to visit.

Souvenir items here are at very low price. If you are looking for low prices souvenir items this place is good for you. There's also walking vendors here that will sell you jewelries made of pearl and that they'll demonstrate putting fire to the pearl so that you'll believe it's real. IT'S FAKE. Try to rub their pearl on a rough surface it will get scratches

This well-known monument in stunning surroundings is a statue showing a famous blood contract from 1565. This is only a brief attraction. I'd guess 5 minutes at most and you'll be on your way to your next location.

Cool statue!! It wasnt the exact place where the blood compact was held tho. They just put the monument there. Tour guides explain this to you before you go.

The only annoying thing was the photographer who took our pics without our consent and sold it to us after. We didnt buy the photos so what was he gonna do with them??????

The only down part is the people trying to sell you jewelery all the time. But it's a wonderful view of history of the Philippines and where lives were saved.

As a social science graduate, it’s quite nice to see those places which you have studied in school.

This is the first leg of the Bohol Countryside Tour, a historical and educational site. There were lots of people cueing to have their pictures taken.

It's a very nice statue about a rarely talked about part of history. Though I am aware that the colonization of the Philippines was in no way a smooth transition, it's stories like these that help us remember that the Filipino people were not dumb and had agency all through the 300 years of colonization. It's also cool how the statue was created by a Bohol native.

This is not the actual place where the compact happened. But a monumental one. Here, you can buy the cheapest souvenir from other tourist spots. I bought lots of key chains with my 100 pesos, magnetic souvenirs, and affordable bags with just 100 pesos. Visit this spot on your last or 1st day, but I suggest you should visit it first.

Historic site of Peace between these two cultures. The only blood spilled was by the volunteers to drink and make a well.

The shrine is located at Tagbilaran City along the provincial highway, you can park beside the road, however if you happen to have tourists who visited the shrine at the same time you'll need to be patient for your time to have photo opportunity. Just beside the shrine is a hotel and I love Tagbilaran marker, also souvenir vendors were visible and I suggest you to buy souvenirs here because it was much cheaper than buying on other tourist spots

You may think there's nothing here but a depiction of the Blood Compact. But it's a Napoleon Abueva art.

Also, best to see what's beyond the I ❤ Tagbilaran letter blocks.
