CALERUEGA: The Hanging bridge, Koi pond and Elevated walkway

Caleruega, in Brgy, Kaylaway, Batulao, Batangas, is a “house of prayer and renewal.” It is open to activities like retreats, recollections, prayer and renewal workshops, study, research, youth camps, marriage and family encounters, skills training, leadership seminars, art, music, and liturgy workshops and environment and agriculture-related activities.”

To get to Caleruega, take the national road from Tagaytay, going to Nasugbu. After the Nasugbu Welcome Arch, turn left to Evercrest Golf Club, follow the road and you’ll see directions going to Caleruega. Just take it from there. Easy to find. Immediately after Evercrest, you may want to check out Chapel on the Hill which has gained popularity as a prime wedding location. See location map.

Caleruega has amenities like conference and function halls, dormitories and cottages. The Transfiguration Chapel has become its famous landmark being popular among couples as a venue for wedding and has been featured in magazines, television shows and even in movies.

Equally interesting is the CAMP SITE AND REFLECTION GARDEN which I am featuring here. The entrance is located at the back of the Chapel and Administration Building, accessible by some 5-10 minutes of walk on paved road should you wish not to bring your car. There are rest areas along the way with a view of Tagaytay mountains. From the entrance, trees, man made waterfalls, fountains, koi ponds, and lush fauna over elevated walkways provide relaxing sights and atmosphere fit for meditation. Farther down is the camp area on rolling hills and tall trees. I have compiled some images below:


Here are other images in the main garden between the Administration Building and the Transfiguration Chapel:

You may call Caleruega at (0921) 2709890 or (0921) 830-4226 and  if does not work anymore. you may check their website HERE.

Before Caleruega is an equally interesting place, Chapel on the Hill. See Chapel on the Hill here.

    Muy señor mío, me parece estupendo que exista un lugar así, pero conozco uno mejor también llamado Caleruega, pues es un pueblo muy bello en la España profunda.

    Por cierto, ¿esto está en Filipinas o dónde? Es que yo no entiendo el inglés. Los siento.

    Atte. un servidor.

    Great pics. I never knew Caleruega was so big. I just visited the place for the first time for a 6pm wedding. Too bad we weren’t able to explore the place as much as you did. Thanks for sharing!

    Sistah: Yes, is it indeed! Not only restful but peaceful.

    Bong: Sometimes, better things (if not the best!) are down below. Try going straight down in Caleruega to see what I mean. :)

  18. bong says:

    huh?! visited that place a number of times already and not once have i seen that hanging bridge. i’m such a church-goer kasi e kaya i always go straight up to the chapel. :)
