Beautiful landscapes and the ones you'd see when you are having retreats. Depending on the time of your visit, there will be ongoing mass and everyone is expected not to make a noise. There's like an outdoor place for prayers and feel religious. It is located near Jack's Ridge so the place is atop of Davao City.

This post communist city, plenty of religious images, and full of wonder places, deserve to be walked all along, day and night. To try his people and to enjoy pubs, restaurants, churches, and every place. It's a gift of God in our days. Not less than 3-4 days to visit in a calm walk.

a good place to visit for religious people. it was very quiet and not a lot people are there during our visit. it's a shrine so people mostly pray or light a candle. that's about it.
