A sacred, scenic place

Does the image below ring a bell?

If you thought that's the Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, you're wrong. The image above is the Risen Christ statue situated at the the edge of the hill at Monasterio de Tarlac.

Who would have thought that a sacred and at the same time a scenic place can be found at the landlocked province of Tarlac? I hail from the province of Tarlac and it makes me proud that a place like the Monasterio is just few hours drive from my hometown.

Aside from the statue, this castle-like place at Monasterio de Tarlac is a must see!

Church visits and praying are best done with the family. :)
