What I did
So, what's with Caleruega to make me fall in love with her? As mentioned in the brochure handed out to its visitors, the place is a "house of prayer and renewal" catering to individuals and groups looking for the perfect venue to hold retreats, recollections, prayers, weddings, reunions, researches, trainings, seminars, workshops and the like.
Why, even filmmakers have found the place the perfect venue for shooting their movies! This is true in the case of the blockbuster, "Sukob", wherein one of the wedding scenes had the church in Caleruega as its setting.
Located in a secluded part of Nasugbu, Batangas, this sanctuary has become the latest buzz among those fond of making brief weekend trips in places near Metro Manila.
One nippy weekend, two of my Manila-based friends took me there to shield ourselves from the fury of an impending storm, which came in the heels of a far more catastrophic one.
For several carefree hours, I’ve never felt so safe and secured even as the biting cold and the howling winds assaulted our senses as we explored this piece of heaven here on earth.
Now that I’ve been smitten by her charms, it’s but natural to include Caleruega in my growing list of must-return places in the country.
