The place that will bring us closer to God

The monastery is serene in nature where you can pray and listen to the message of God through silence.

If traveler wants to visit a church and have a moment of silence, would recommend Carmelite Monastery. The location of the monastery in Mabolo is in between SM City and Ayala Mall.

This is one of the most beautiful and peaceful churches in Cebu City for me. The altar is magnificent, although it is a more modest version of the kind you would see in grand cathedrals in Europe.

I went here when I had my birthday just this month. I attended a mass and light some candles. It was quiet and very peaceful, and that's I really love the most. If you are looking for a place where you could just pray and talk to Him, this place if perfectly fits for you!
