Visiting Caleruega Church of Nasugbu, Batangas


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Over at Barangay Caylaway (Kaylaway) of Batulao at Nasugbu, Batangas lies the Caleruega church and all its glory. Some people spell its name as Calaruega and is often mistaken as located in Tagaytay, Cavite. Just as how we mistaken the Taal Volcano as part of Tagaytay, but in reality it is part of Batangas.

Regardless of where this church is located, it probably ranks lower than the many splendid architectural masterpieces because of its simplicity. But I believe there is greatness in being simple since too much complexity may become too "noisy" or complicated to the eye.

Many have said that the church is "a peaceful sanctuary to meditate and pray. You don't only commune with God but also with nature Albeit going there is an uphill climb with rough and rugged roads, but once you get there, it's all worth it!"

The church is small, but you will feel the solemnity and serenity of the area. However, it becomes crowded when mass is going on since not too many people can fit inside.

There's a Php 20 environment fee collected on our way to the church and an entrance fee Php 30 at the gate. Parking is small and majority of which are along the road prior to the entrance. You can rent a trike from the highway to go there. The fare is around Php 50 going in, and would become Php 60 when going out.





Whether you want to reflect or unwind, just admire the beautiful garden, or take lots of selfies, groupfies with your friends, take your pick, but do not forget to pray as it should be our ultimate goal when we visit a church. My wife would often remind me to make three wishes every time I visit a church for the first time. This could also be a popular destination every Visita Iglesia as one of the 7 or 14 churches on many people's list.


 

This is an ideal place for retreats, weddings and other events as there are also rooms for rent within the area. Though it can become a bit crowded during Sundays, when there are events and during Visita Iglesia. It has become a popular tourist attraction already. The nice cool weather is perfect for strolling its surroundings for some quiet time with yourself.
