Antipolo

The Pilgrim's Sanctuary

Antipolo is where you go when you want to get away from the city but don’t necessarily wish to leave behind creature comforts that you’ve gotten used to. The city comforts are there, but set in the cooler climes of the slopes of the Sierra Madre mountain range.

Beyond the city comforts, you have devotion to Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, which draws believers from all over Rizal province and Metro Manila. Much like most of the country, it’s a place where the sacred and the urbane stand side by side.
