PICTURES OF OPON
Opon is the old name of Lapu-Lapu City before it became a city. I am proud to be called an Oponganon. I love this place with it's simple beauty. It was invaded in the year 1521 more or less by Magellan but failed to capture it at the first try because of the strong resistance of Datu Lapu-Lapu. His heroism had earned him the city which is named after him. Here are some pictures to view the beauty of this rustic place. It is rightly called Pearl of the Orient as it is located in the heart of the Philippine Archipelago.
