Since 2008 we always visit Caleruega, this is my husband tradition or some sort of “panata”.

Last Friday, we went to Caleruega before going to my grandmother’s house, we left early to avoid traffic. You can never get tired of this place; it is very relaxing and refreshing place so it is not surprising anymore if couples want this as their wedding venue, schools choose this for their retreat and people love to visit this during holy week. We are one of those people who visit Caleruega every Holy Week.

This is my son’s happy place.

About Caleruega (from flyer) 

Caleruega was named after the birthplace of St. Dominic de Guzman, father of Order of Preachers. Wishing to honor and remember the legacy of their founder, he Filipino Dominicans established Caleruega with the hopes that it will, like the town of Caleruega in Spain, be a birthplace - a genesis for people speaking to and for the Divine Creator.

Silence, solitude, harmony, the majesty of creation, the freedom of Light and the passion to share God's word - this is Caleruega: the seedbed of preachers, the cornerstone of spiritual inspiration. Come, walk in His presence. 

Caleruega celebrates the priceless gift of life and its Giver. Here, the lost soul finds direction; the weary traveller is shown the Way. every tree, flower and brick is a testament to God's splendor and power. 

Caleruega speaks through signs and symbols. It is a haven, a home, a sanctuary amidst the beauty of nature where pilgrims are open to prayer, to creative transformation, and to Gospel values.
