Closer to Nature... Closer to God

I hope the pictures could reveal the real beauty of the place of my spiritual break. This is it, I had a two-day break with my friends and colleagues.

We went to this beautiful place







The trees in the pathway are adorned by Capiz lamps. During night time, the Capiz lamps perform two purpose, lighting and decorative pieces. 

The pathway already gives you a wonderful journey.







The Transfiguration Chapel of Caleruega!




The Transfiguration Chapel in Caleruega is one of my favorite places in the world.

Caleruega is situated at Batulao Nasugbu, Batangas. Batangas is a province that is not too far from the city. Hence, going to Caleruega does not require long hours of travel and exhaustion. The place is around two hours away from Manila.

Aside from the chapel, here are other reasons why you should visit Caleruega


 There is nothing like this in the city.




How do you want to have breakfast here? The spacious land is also ideal for group or team building activities.








The bridges in the man made pond leads to another bridge. But this time, it's a classic hanging bridge.


The hanging bridge leads to this


A spacious field that houses this serene chapel



Before we left, I uttered my silent prayer...


It remains a silent prayer my friends. If it is not too much to ask, please continuously pray with me.
