A rare gem in the city

Thanks to the owners who preserved the house and everything inside it. I just wish they had better guides.

The is place near Cebu Business Park along Salinas Drive. A nice and quiet place to pray and meditate. This is the place where Pres. Cory Aquino seek refuge before the EDSA Revolution.

I was just intrigued to see this place, which is not too far from the Cebu Business Park, for the main reason that this was the monastery where former President Corazon Aquino took refuge in during the EDSA revolution in 1986. For that single historical significance alone, the trip is worth the while. But more than that, the place provides... More

Mass here is almost always solemn. The ambience is wonderful. The altar is beautiful. Although the church has modernized, they still try to keep it traditional in so many ways.

The Carmelite Monastery is located in the Centre of Cebu. Inside is a Charming Church. Beside the Church is a Souvenir Shop where you can buy Religious Items. They also sell fruits, veggies and other items too.

The monastery is very accessible since it's just along the road. However, when you are inside the church all you can hear is silence. You can indeed pray solemnly without disturbance.

The carmelite monastery is more of a place for prayer than an attraction. It does have a beautiful garden but if you go here, it should be because you want to pray. Still it's worth a visit........

This is a really nice chapel and I went there on a Sunday afternoon because of Lee Den's information here that there is a rite going on. Today there was a real cermon happening (not a mass though, as the priest pointed out) which started at 4:30pm and it was beautiful with the nuns performing extensive gregorian chants. I'm very...
