This is the second Mandaue-Mactan bridge, that was named after the late Marcelo B. Fernan, a former senator and Chief Justice of the Philippine’s Supreme Court. As the name suggests, the bridge connects the island of Lapu-Lapu City to Mandaue City. The city was named after Lapu-Lapu, a Datu of Mactan island, and considered as the first native to have resisted Spanish conquest.
Lapu-Lapu City is a very progressive city because most of the manufacturing firms are located here. It may be a bit far because it is separated from the main island of Cebu, but having the Mactan Bridges I and II, makes it very convenient to visit this City.
