Located at the foothills of Sierra Madre mountains, you can expect Regina Rica to be a perfect place where you can experience a serene, relaxing, prayerful atmosphere. To maintain the sacredness of the place, the community strictly follows a dress code, shorts and revealing upper garments are not allowed. Shawls and skirts are provided for free. I was wearing shorts... More

Serene with flocks of sheeps around the statue. Clean and quiet place. Beautiful images, door , and lots of picnic places with restaurant. Lots of trees and peacocks in the picnic area with covered tables/chairs. Good supply of water in the restrooms. Staff were polite and helpful.

My family and I came to attend the mass. It was a great experience. My son ended up bathing at the well too. We were also blessed , got a rosary as a token and prayed over as my son and I are celebrating our birthday the following week.

Very good garden with lots of plants. It is a very good place to contemplate and do some soul searching. This is also a nice for Family to find quality time in the presence of Mama Mary. Not too far from Manila. the windmill is also just a stone throw away and you could easily add this to your trip... More

It was our first time visiting and it was worth it. The place is located in the mountains of Tanay which gives a scenic view of the area. The place is huge and can accommodate private vehicles. Attendants are everywhere to guide you where you can park. A very good place to reconnect with our Lord due to its tranquility.

Regina Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia is a place worth seeing, even if you are not religious.The place is peaceful and surprisingly quiet (but still lots of people as it is at all major turist spots) and it is free. I had the opportunity to meet Sr Eppie in person. Which was great.

This i becoming popular nowadays. Great location, its sitting on top of the mountain in Sampaloc Tanay. Offers a great view overlooking rizal and laguna quezon mountain range. Its crowded during lenten season for the station of the cross. Peaceful, calm and relaxing.

"It's worth it" A place for contemplation & reflection. I recommend having an early trip as the scenery going up is awesome. The place requires a Php50 parking fee and an option to ride a shuttle going up is Php5 for elderly & PWDs. Roads are well maintained for pilgrims who prefer to walk & cottages for quick rest.

My favorite time here at Regina RICA is at the end of the day when the hundreds of pilgrims have left and the gates are closed. My favorite hut is at the edge of a very dark and dense forest, a few meters away from the Brook which is lined with thick bamboos. My companions are the animals as everyone... More
