Caleruega Church: Close to Nature, Closer to God

Remember the reason why we are at Nasugbu Batangas? Since we’re already there, I thought why not drop by at Caleruega Church, famous for weddings and retreats. Located at Batulao, Brgy. Kaylaway, Nasugbu Batangas, it’s bordering Tagaytay and Nasugbu.

Now I know why it’s dubbed as among the Top 10 wedding churches in the Philippines to get married. The Transfiguration Chapel, as what they call it, is so small that it has an intimate vibe in it.

Not recommended for big weddings.

But you might think twice because of this beautiful steps, great for photo ops and video coverage.

As I say this place is not only famous for weddings but also for retreats. You can rent rooms if you’re staying for days and there’s also a canteen for retreat participants only. You can inquire for their wedding and retreat rates at the retreat house located inside the vicinity.

I tried to check online but it was not available maybe because there are a lot of people making reservations. I read that if you want to book your preferred wedding date, you have to do it a year before your wedding as it might not be available. I’m not planning to get married here so I didn’t inquire for their rates, sorry guys. 😦

Some Pointers:

  • It’s a bit far from the city although there’s a tricycle going there, you’ll find it difficult to go back at the highway
  • If you’re bringing a car, please ensure to park inside the retreat church or else you’ll be paying some guys ranging from 30PHP to 50PHP
  • Be vigilant and try not to pissed off those guys offering you a parking slot, you might end up with a nail on your wheels
  • Dark when traveling at night, no lamp posts
  • Uphill so don’t drive fast
