For ladies you need to wear a long skirt when going around the grounds. If you don't have this, skirts are readily available at the entrance, no need... More

My family went to this place during our visit to Northern Mindanao for the 37th BCBP National Anniversary Celebration in Cagayan de Oro and we never regretted doing so. The experience was spiritually recharging especially if you go the extra mile and pay homage to the Host located on top of Jesus' Divine Mercy Statue.

This place is a source of spirituality and inspiration. Not too far from Cagayan de Oro (on the road to Laguindingan airport). Parking is free since 2015, as well as candles inside the premises (donations are welcomed) and there is a nice garden facing the bay. In order for women to get inside, long skirt/dress is mandatory. Don't worry if... More

For the devoted Roman Catholic this shrine is worth a visit. Just a 45 minutes travel from Cagayan de Oro City.

The place is usually visited by pilgrims. Women are not allowed if you are wearing pants.Get ready with a long skirt. Silence is observed. It is a holy place. Picture taking is okay. Expect to have a climb to the top part of the statue.

This place is great for those on a religious pilgrimage and those just wanting a quiet place to pray, hear mass or meditate. Even if you're not religious or spiritual this place has a great view - great for general sightseeing.

As mentioned on the orientation this is not a park but a solemn place of worship and prayer. The huge statue of the Divine Mercy is very impressive and gives the worshiper an ideal place to reflect and be with the Lord.

The place was so solemn and peaceful. The people visiting this place are also very respectful of those who came to this place to pray and not just sight-seeing. The overlooking view made the place more beautiful. Its a place to go to be feel His presence.
