Also tasted the natural spring water and it tasted... More

The Statue of The Divine Mercy is an awe inspiring sight, the gardens that surround it are very beautiful and must be equally good for the soul. Be prepared to stand in line for quite a while before climbing the many steps to the top of the Statue.

You need transportation to get here. No fees required but if you can spare some donations, it's very much appreciated. Also, for women, it's required to wear skirts or wrap the pants or shorts with scarves. There are souvenirs that are being sold as well.

A place where miracles took place, it is truly a humbling experience to visit Divine Mercy. One of the reason why I am coming back to Cagayan de Oro.
