Reflections at Marian

, , No Comments
I've been wanting to visit this place with my husband last year as our anniversary itinerary but at some instances we decided to just go back at Caleruega. But then my wish was granted when my inlaws took a trip with me at this place and have a sight at the wonderful garden situated at Batangas. I learned about this place from a facebook friend and from then on I told myself that one day I'll be setting my footsteps and reflect with God's grace.
 
Marian Orchard is a catholic-themed park built on a 5 hectare land surrounded with various kinds of plants and towering trees. It is located at Barangay Malaban, Balete Batangas. The place is just right if you just want to have some meditation, repentance or have a quiet place and relax your mind.

staircase to the station of the cross
We found this staircase which leads to the station of the cross but since it's not yet Holy Week the grasses were still full grown and we decided not to take the path forward instead and just prayed when we reached the first station. Heading back upstairs we took some shots of the wondrous view from the top.

The Chapel and Christ The Redeemer tower

Christ the Redeemer have stairs so you will be able to climb on the tower however I didn't know about that matter when we visited the site. So unfortunately I didn't have that chance to see the view from the top. I have so many pictures to share but I don't want the post to be worthy of pictures of myself. Instead, I am inviting you to take some trip at the Marian Orchard and rave about the place with your own experience. Have a nice trip!
