Antipolo Sights and Landmarks Guide, Philippines
Nothing amazes us more than an array of natural sights that justify how Mother Earth has blessed the humanity with charming sights. There’s no bowing of heads down but chinning up to appreciate the so-dubbed “City in the Sky”, Antipolo.
While white sand beaches are common in other destinations, this highland city of Antipolo boasts of its breathtaking view of the metropolis and surrounding towns. It flaunts the natural beauty of the Hinulugang Taktak Waterfalls that is recognized to be a national park. Here, you can go on a picnic, take a dip into the water in your swimsuits, or simply enjoy watching the flowing water while on pathways and walks. If you travel in the month of May, you’re treated to a night of live cultural performances and concerts at very affordable fees.
A rare opportunity of visiting the Pilgrimage City awaits any avid traveler. The Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage will be largely flocked every night of April 30 until dawn when devotees travel on foot—from Quiapo Church Manila all the way up in a walk for a cause called “Alay Lakad”. Cave lovers and adventurers are charmed and moved by the 8th-floor deep underground, that creates some rock formation. Inday Nelly’s Mystical Cave may give you some goose bumps, but it’s amazing how the stalactites and stalagmites somehow resemble religious images during the Lenten Season.
Boso-Boso Church in Barangay San Jose is another spot of grandeur due to its old stones with wild vines and plants growing atop. This remnant of a centuries-old church (destroyed during World War II) offers Sunday services at the small chapel built inside. What’s more spectacular to see, is the pilgrim site of Pinagmisahan Hills Via Dolorosa that used to be The White Cross. The Stations of the Cross and monumental sizes of saints are here.
Along the way of touring up and down, observant travelers come to appreciate a few of Antipolo’s gated communities: Alta Vista Residential Village, Maia Alta, Cuesta Verde Executive Village, Kingsville Heights, Brentwood Parks, among others. The Valley Golf Subdivision gathers golfers and attracts tourists to play.
From cave exploration to religious site appreciation, to picnicking and swimming, Antipolo makes it all fun for you. Locals and tourists visit occasionally to relive their meaningful experiences. Leaving on a plane, boat or public vehicles just to get to this urbanized place in the sky is within reach. Stop dreaming; give yourself a break to savor the wonders of the earth.
