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

Twice I have been there now and the views are breath taking. When it comes to the facilities it does lack a little but, like no resturant, there are shops down bellow. It depends on what you are looking for.... Its a religious spot so you dont want it too commercialized. It is disappointing the hike to the heart isnt... More

Its 5 years since I last visited this religious site. I found it to be peaceful, restful and spiritual. The statue is seriously big and spectacular but in line with other with other contributors I must remark that it is a stiff climb up many steps to get to it. Temperatures here can reach 50C in April May and June... More

Felt like I can talk to Jesus face-to-face. Beware of your children if your're going to visit this place during holy week because its very crowded. I've seen a lost child when we went here. Food is allowed inside the premises. Avoid wearing skirts and sleeveless to prevent hassles.

Its located in El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental. It is much closer in Laguindingan Airport than Lumbia. You need to wear a long skirt to avoid being required to wear their sarong. Sleeveless are also forbidden. After the mass, you need to attend a short (non-english/non-tagalog) seminar before going up.
