Stressed-out or not, Tagaytay is our favorite place to hang out. Aside from its comfortably cool weather, there are countless things to see, eat, buy and do here with various vantage view of Taal Lake.
Here are some:
- Go on a Spiritual Journey
Tagaytay, more than its cooling breeze, it is also a home of various retreat centers and churches.
Pink Sisters Chapel & Convent.
For the restless soul, this place will calm your heart. The Pink Sister, managed by the Sister-Servant of the Holy Spirit of Perpetual Adoration , is one of the famous churches in Tagaytay.
A very quite place for someone who needs some soul-searching, reflection or just merely relaxation.
It is surrounded by lush greens, mostly pine trees, this beautiful and tranquil scene will surely recharge one’s batteries.
Wearing pink habit, nuns are also the choir during the mass in a very angelic voice. Church-goers are encouraged to turn off their phones and lower their voices in respect for others.
If you want to seek prayers from the pink sisters, leave your petitions at the drop box provided. Sisters are praying at the Holy Eucharist for our prayer intentions.
Tierra de Maria
This 50-foot Virgin Mary image is a replica of the Our Lady of Manaog in Pangasinan. It is a small chapel where you can recite the novena to Our Lady of Manaog. You can light a candle for your prayer intentions and have a quick tour around since parking space is not available here.
Our Lady of Lourdes Church
Location wise, this is the most popular church in Tagaytay. The church has a beautiful garden landscape, candle chapel where mass goers light colored candles. It has a large free parking area but still not enough for the mass goers during weekend.
Calleruega Chapel of Transfiguration of Jesus This place is perfect for a quick retreat.
Nature tripping is one of the things to do here aside from attending a mass.
Nature plus a cool weather is one perfect getaway from the bustling city life.
