Renowned sculptor Ed Castrillo has started the groundworks for the Heritage Monument at the Vicente de Lara Park fronting the Provincial Capitol of Misamis Oriental. His staff are laying the steel bars which will act as the main supports for the sculptured figures. The main obelisk area have been isolated by temporary aluminum sheets.

In earlier press releases, Castrillo said the monument will “herald the rich history and aspirations of the citizens of Misamis Oriental” and will “illustrate Misamis Oriental’s history, culture, natural wonders, values, socio-economic aspirations and dynamic transformation”.
