These are some of the signs at the Monasterio de Tarlac, a Catholic monastery and hermitage along the mountain ranges of San Jose, Tarlac province and within the eco-tourism park. There is a 30-foot statue of the Risen Christ perched on the mountain. There is also a small chapel that houses the relic of the True Cross of Jesus Christ. The relic, the only one in Asia, arrived here in 2007. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see it---and taking a photo of the relic is not allowed.
I was with a group of shutterbugs who visited the monastery last Saturday. It was a 3-hour drive from Manila.
Linking to Signs, Signs
Nice signs. The church is beautiful!
Such an interesting place to visit, nice to go with a tour.
what a magnificent edifice! even a replica would be worth seeing.
Looks like a beautiful church. Some places allow photos without the flash. Too bad this one wouldn't allow at least that.
A most impressive building! A welcoming wide entrance features in the last feature! And love the blue tones in the beautiful sign featured in the first photo!
Interesting signs. Improper attire must offend the church.
A beautiful monastery! I'm sure the 3 hr trip was worth it.
someday i hoped to visit this.
wow, beautiful church!
