Caleruega, Nasugbu

Nestled in lush, verdant grounds, Caleruega serves not only as a church, but also as a sanctuary retreat, with a koi pond, rope bridge, and many other interesting structures, aside from the main building of worship. Founded in 1995, the spot has deservedly become a popular site for wedding ceremonies, with the grounds affording peaceful and picturesque strolls to enjoy before heading into the main building, the Chapel of Transfiguration. Inside the chapel, you can observe vibrant stained glass windows above the altar, and grand architecture throughout. If you need a break and refreshments, order a drink at the cafe in the green grounds. To plan Nasugbu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Recommended place to visit when around Tagaytay area. Location is good. Serene, peaceful. Great location for weddings. Howeer, local government needs to fix the roads going to the church. Quite rough ...  more »

  • A very enticing and amazing spot you can have photos. A 2.5hours of travel from Pasay to Nasugbu is worth every place from Grand staircase, chapels, statues, the hanging bridge going to minipond that ...  more »

  • A good place to contemplate because it is so serene and beautiful. The place looks so well-maintained. Make sure to have a bottle of water with you because exploring the places within Caleruega is tiring.
  • A good place to unwind, area is very large, lot of places to go, lots of people during weekends, place is very beautiful for pictures. there are stores in the place.
  • Calaruega is so serene and beautiful. The place is really great for retreats. We did our college retreat there. The food was good. Our stomachs got stuffed there during our retreat.
  • Traffic gets more unpredictable and it piles up in any day of the week. The influx is worse during weekends especially every payday and during long holidays. Slowdown of vehicles becomes more terrible but places like this makes all the traffic bearable. It took us 4 long hours from Manila to reach Batangas. Usual travel time is from 2-3hours. Calaruega is a small town in Spain where our patron Saint was born. The simplistic architecture is derived from the spanish colonial. Enter the building in the entrance gate and walk towards the garden stairs leading to the scenic Chapel. It is indeed a visual spectacle. The chapel has been a popular venue for private weddings with rates ranging from P15,000-20,000 depending on the season. Holy Mass is open for public every Sunday at 11:00 in the morning. Calaruega is not merely a solemn place of prayer but a destination to unwind. The other side of the fountain is a long stretch of road for the Station of the Cross. It is filled with blooming flowers and the picnic grounds is located downhill where people can rest. There are different sights to see. Families will find peace in the manmade falls, koi ponds, and hanging bridge. The entrance fee of P30 per head collected upon reaching Calaruega is for the maintenance of the entire property. The location is easily reachable. From Tagaytay-Nasugbu Hi-way facing south, turn left at Batulao Road. Chapel is 1.5km from the Hi-way. Roads are rough but the view is simply breathtaking. There is a parking fee of P40 paid directly to the attendant. You can also travel to Calaruega through Nasugbu-bound buses and take a tricycle from the main road.
  • Two of my friends got married here and the place was impressive! It's a bit of a workout if you're coming up from the fountain but it's worth it. The greenery is beautiful and so is the church itself. Regardless of its size, it still looks terrific! The location is remote and stress-free!
