2 hours from Manila, you can reach Caleruega Retreat Center, Nasugbu Batangas.
It was a warm sunny day when we went to this place. Upon arriving at the said destination, you are welcomed by people who are showing you where you can park your car.
After that, you are lead to their reception and have to pay an amount to be able to see this beautiful place.
The main entrance was grandiose because of its lovely staircase which is a part of the church. We did not see the insides of the church at that time since there is an upcoming ceremony.
When you get out of the church, you are already welcomed with is wonderful view. A lot of greens and a lovely open space.
On the other side of the church, you will be welcomed with their well landscaped garden with little falls and filled with koi fishes.
They even have their own version of the hanging bridge that will lead you to the hill.
The hill will lead you to another chapel where you can pray and enjoy the scenery.
So all in all, this retreat center was really a nice day for our little outing with the family. Caleruega is indeed a good place where you can relax and meditate. It can calm you from all the busy work world that you are dealing everyday.
I am very glad that we had the chance to visit Caleruega, I would recommend this if you wanted to be in the nature and at the same time, to recollect yourself.
