Grotto of Our Lady of Peace

      Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Mother of Peace Grotto is located at the top of Caglago Mountain in Barangay Tabgon, Caramoan, Camarines Sur. It has 546 steps to the grotto leads to the 26-foot image of the Blessed Virgin Mary.



       The construction of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Mother of Peace Grotto began in 1989 under the leadership of St. Dominic of Guzman parish priest Rev. Fr. Felix F. Barella. During its construction, the people of Caramoan had to climb Mt. Caglago to bring the materials. It was completed the following year through foreign and local funding. The grotto opened its door to the public in 20 May 1990 led by Archbishop of Caceres Most Reverend Leonardo Z. Legaspi OP. D.D. 



       Here we go to take the 546 steps, you must bring water to drink and make sure you don't have any heavy bags. 



       At the top, there is a small chapel. The Eucharist is celebrated in the Shrine every first Sunday of the month and other occasions such as the anniversary of the foundation of the image (20th of May), Triduum, and feast of the Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary, Mother of Peace (4th of October).









       When you reached on the top, you will see the beautiful views of the islands surrounded by the water. So nice and awesome.

I will surely love the panoramic view on top. Here in Thailand, there are really big temples built on top of the mountains and the climb is just so long but I have gone to one with an escalator. Really cool!
