    "Bohol Blood Compact Site" is located in Barangay Bool, Tagbilaran City, Bohol.

    This particular site was made in honor of a very important event in the Philippine history done between Miguel Lopez de Legazpi of Spain and Rajah Sikatuna of Bohol.

    The Bohol Blood Compact sculpture was made by the National Artist, Napoleon Abueva, a Boholano himself. It is placed on an open and raised dais portraying five life-sized images of men gathered around a table with Legazpi and Sikatuna supposedly making a toast.

    Standing on the dais, visitors are treated to a good view of the Bohol Sea and the contour of that particular side of the island of Bohol.
