Government launches tourism initiative to create Tagaytay Tierra de Maria

Tagaytay is a 2nd class city in the province of Cavite, Philippines. The city is relatively close to the capital city of Manila, only 59 kilometres (37 miles) away via Aguinaldo Highway, providing an easy escape for the locals from the heat of the huge metropolis. 

Tagaytay is one of the country's most popular tourist destinations because of its scenery and cooler climate provided by its high altitude. Tagaytay overlooks Taal Lake in Batangas and provides views of Taal Volcano Island in the middle of the lake through various vantage points situated in the city. 

Tagaytay is a city full of nature. The outdoor parks, restaurants, and even shopping centers take advantage of the stunning scenery by building around rolling hills and green ridges so that every experience feels like you’re still one with nature. It is the perfect getaway to enjoy different places that locals and even foreigners admire and appreciate.

You don’t have to be religious to find the TIERRA DE MARIA fascinating. This 50ft statue of Mary, the Mother of God, is a spot where Filipinos worship and take photos for souvenirs. There is a small church next to the statue with a flea market collection of a Jesus statue on the cross, photos of the prophet, and twinkling Christmas lights strung about. 

TIERRA DE MARIA is located near People’s Park. It is easy to locate with limited to no parking space. You can see everything in less than 10 minutes but the experience is worth more than that. The place is very solemn and visitors observe silence. After praying in the chapel, you can go upstairs on the side to touch the hand of our Lady and to the top deck with a scenic view of Taal Lake.

Before leaving, don't forget to pick a small piece of paper in the basket near the door, a little food for thought to read taken from Bible scriptures.

Here are some pictures of The TIERRA DE MARIA:
