If you are travelling south to Mindanao, you may want to pass by El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental's most visited attraction, the Shrine of the Divine Mercy. The huge statue of the Jesus (DIvine Mercy) facing the beautiful overlooking view of Macajalar bay will give you enough eye satisfaction (try visiting early in the morning). Since this place is a...

Awesome! Just awesome. From the 50/70-foot statue to the people who visit the shrine...just awesome. Anybody who goes there will really be awed by the faith shown by everyone. All ladies must wear a dress, or borrow a wrap around skirt at the entrance of the shrine. From downhill, you have to climb the 250 or more steps going to... More

We visited this Shrine in 2012 and it is so beautiful especially if you are on top facing the face of Jesus. When you look around as if you are on top of the world looking at the beautiful blue sea. I was speechless for words to describe the awesome view. I could not believed at that time that I... More

I find the place too religious. Strict rules on clothes, and even for women, wearing pants is not enough, they have to wear a piece of cloth to act like a dress/skirt. We all needed to listen to a long lecture before climbing up a flight of steps to the centerpiece statue a lecture that tries to emphasize on all... More

One of the religious attraction in the Philippines. Divine Mercy presently known as the highest Divine Mercy statue in the world. Visit for a prayer. You can visit my blog on how to go up to the shrine at http://traveldiary-007.com/divine-mercy-shrine/

Divine Mercy is a must visit for the devotees. I'm not a devotee but i should say the place is beautiful and solemn. Ladies are not allowed to wear shorts and long pants. They are required to wear a skirt or a wrap around upon entering the shrine premises. Men are not allowed to wear sleeveless and slippers. They have... More

To be in this place of faith is a a joy beyond words. The super-imposing huge statue of the DIVINE MERCY humbles you to the ground. His arms so widely stretch, all- embracing just captivate your tired spirit. It is on a hilltop facing the awesome Macajalar Bay of Cagayan De Oro, a Northern Mindanao city. Nature is just grand...

A perfect setting to renew and reflect. You should not miss this place, when in Cagayan de Oro. Its just a few minutes away from the City Proper. Public Transportations are available from the City Proper.

The Divine Mercy Statue is located at the top of the Divine Mercy Hills in El Salvador, Misamis Oriental (-+ 15 minutes drive from CDO) Words is not enough to describe, what you see and how you feel, as you see the beauty of the surrounding area leading to the Divine Mercy Shrine. On either side of the pathway, the... More

A 5 minutes drive from the main highway of El Salvador city proper. A parking lot for private cars and stairs for people wants to walk going up to the shrine. The garden is well maintained and the view from the top is very relaxing. A catholic mass and religious routine of praying into the top of the shrine where... More
