The cave has its ambience .... natural cold and limited light. Then the statue of the blessed mother is there. The slab of stone was there telling the story of how it came about. The natural spring water was also continuously flowing around the statue. Though the it was an eyesore of sorts to see plastic basins around the altar... More

I visited this place because of faith and I also believe that this image really gives miracle. The cave is hot since the time I went there the aircon was off.(yes, you heard it right) the cave has been innovated and modernize. By the way a lot of mosquito's inside the cave. Better pray on the altar where the mass... More

Very very holy. The water behind Mama Mary is believed to be holy since it naturally comes from the cave itself. Need to ride habal2x since it is very far from the city center.

Quiet and clean place. We went there during Holy Week. I expected lots of people but there were only a few. A good place to pray to the Virgin Mary specially inside the cave where it is solemn and quiet. I also brought my kids with me. My 3yr old daughter is afraid of the dark cave, but when I... More

The image is engraved on a rock, or so I was told. There was a small circle fronting the image, but before you can come in, you need to remove your shoes or slippers. This practice is actually based on the bible - which signifies that the ground is holy. Indeed, one can feel the presence of God there.

Guadalupe Cave is where the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe is enshrined. Indeed, it is a cave, called Langub, by the locals. It is small, can accommodate to the most 30 people during a mass. The inside of the cave has been cemented, making it safe for anyone praying inside. At the altar is the image of Our Lady... More

Not much there except a small cave with drops of water coming out of the stalactites. It's a unique place to visit after seeing the Taoist temple but not worth driving all the way.

Cebuanos are religious folk; it is no surprise really since Cebu is the seat of Christendom in the Philippines since 1565. The Guadalupe Cave or Langub ( Bisayan term for cave ) in Guadalupe is one of the most visited sites in Cebu City. Cebuano folks claim that the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared before the locals inside... More

This is a very special place for me. It is very solemn and very "naturely" for a church. The holy place is cozy and its modest. It is not as grand as the Basilica del Sto. Niño, but it is because of that, that the masses held here are more intimate.
