Nothing really to expect, if the purpose of your visit is to pray then this place serves the purpose. Quiet and small.

We visited this small chapel on Maundy Thursday around lunch time. It's jam-packed with worshipers and vendors too. Make sure to tour the place quick as the place is pretty small, to give way to other worshipers who also wants to come inside. After praying, you can go upstairs and take a selfie on the huge Mama Mary's statue. Breath... More

Really don't know why I bothered to stop and look. Queues of the misguided waiting to touch statutes and pass on their wish for something/new/better/improved. It was embarrassing to see how gullible people are and they believe such patent nonsense. The carving is interesting if uninspiring and I really wouldn't recommend it.

The vendor inside the premises of the church was kind. He even told us about the pray-answer of the church. The church is over all clean. Small but tidy.

We visited this shrine since it was directly infront of the Development ACademy of the Philippines where we stayed for a weekend.This is a shrine quite popular with tourists probably because of the belief that those who ask or offer prayers for wishes sometimes come true.If you dont have the time to visit the Lady of Manaoag Shrine in Pangasinan...

Called in to see what a small church in the Philippines looked like. Was impressed. Very cosy, comfortable, and the people made me feel welcome even though I was a westerner. Well done to everyone involved.

At the entrance you'll see a huge statue facing the gate. On the left side there is a religious store where you could buy souvenirs and other religious items. Before entering the place there is a mini wishing well located at the center. They sell candles there for a minimal fee. Inside, there is a place where you could see... More
