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:
