It's a place to be with yourself whether you want to pray, meditate or just take time of silence. Overlooking the City of Davao and just a 30 minutes away from the City. You Can buy food outside the Shrine, can ride Taxi or tricycle.

The place sits on top of a hill, it's so peaceful and quiet. Here one can commune with the Creator, far from noise and any distraction. Stay for at least 30 minutes and soak yourself with peaceful meditation it will work wonders for your soul.

If you want to have a good communication with God, then this is the best place to be. But it is best not to join the crowd, the best is to go there alone or with your family

A must see place for devotees. The place is very solemn and ideal for meditation. It is surrounded by trees and is located on top of the hill overlooking Davao City.

We were there for the Holy Week, part of what we call the Visita Iglesia. It serves the purpose of our visit: there are places for prayers and meditation, it is quiet enough to invite reflection; it has an ambiance of being a sacred space, and far enough that there is a sense of sacrifice involved.

Often just called the Shrine it was built by Former Mayor Louis T Santos after the death of his wife. One gets the feeling of the love he and his wife shared together. Dedicated to the Holy Infant Jesus of Prague it reminds one to not only enjoy the view of Gods creation but to give thanks for it too
