Let Not Your Heart be Troubled

If only Caleruega is accessible, I would want to visit weekly and just relax with my ipod and my favorite book. The place is very serene. Lush garden and landscapes, colorful flowers and cool breeze- perfectly perfect.

It is a well-known place, not only for weddings but also for retreats and recollections.





This is the Transfiguration Chapel- the highest point of Caleruega. It is one of the most sought-after wedding churches. The facade is in fact a reproduction of a chapel in Caleruega, Spain.

Unfortunately, there was a wedding when we visited so I wasn't able to take photos of the chapel's interiors.



 A panoramic view of the Batulao Range.


Towering trees adorn the paths. The fresh scent of plants and flowers complement the cool air.





We didn't mind walking far since the surrounding is truly refreshing. The koi ponds and the hanging bridge are a must-see.




 Made of thick wood and abaca ropes, the hanging bridge leads to a wide picnic area.



Caleruega is more than worth the 30-peso entrance fee. The experience of being close to God and nature is an instant relief from the stress and noise of the city. My feet are sore from walking but the inspiring scenery filled my soul with peace. It is truly a fulfilling visit! :)

Oh, my. I keep hoping we get invited to Caleruega for a wedding because I've been dying to see it. Didn't know you could tour the grounds for a fee - so, much thanks for this entry!!!

Wonderful pics! Good thing we got a chance to visit this place last year even if it wasn't in our itinerary! Absolutely worth it! I think Caleruega is in Nasugbu, Batangas.
