Batangas : Marian Orchard

The Marian Orchard
About two hours away from Manila is a prayer park set amidst sprawling land reminiscent of European Gardens. With the Sacred Heart Tower and Church as its centerpiece, surrounded by picture-perfect sights such as Two Hearts Promenade, Garden Steps, Via Crucis Garden, Meditation Gardens and Mary Mediatrix of All Graces Prayer Hall, among others, this place will provide relaxation for the eyes and respite for the weary souls. 


The Marian Orchard was started by Lazaro L. Katigbak in 1986 and is located at Brgy. Malabanan, Balete, Batangas. It is a pilgrimage site managed by Marian Orchard Faith Foundation Inc. New features of the place include the New Angels Gate, Rosarium and Chimes of Mary. In the future, the Orchard has plans of unveiling a second chapel - the Immaculate Heart of Mary, a Marian Plaza, Marian Museum, Our Lady of Fatima Garden and the St. Joseph the Carpenter Workshop. 

It is open everyday from 7 am to 7 pm and holy masses are celebrated every first Friday of the Month, Saturdays and Sundays at 4 PM.

Here are some photos of the pilgrimage site:
