What an awesome place. It's perfect both for devotees and non-devotees alike. The place requires silence among visitors as it is meant for contemplative praying, as you walk the stairs up to the top of the hill where a huge replica of Virgin Mary sits. Beneath the mantle of the Virgin Mary is an adoration chapel and it is a spiritual experience that you must not miss. You can take the Labyrinth Walk if you have more time and experience contemplation and praying for your intentions. There's mass at the chapel beneath the hill, check the website for schedule Also please be observe the dress code which is strictly enforced.

The most impressive religious shrine I have ever been. The layout of the shrine was well thought of and every structure is beautifully built. They have scheduled masses at the airy and spacious hill chapel. There is a restaurant and scattered souvenir and beverage kiosks. Ample parking area, rest spaces, and very well trained staff. But for a place of worship I feel that it is a bit too commercial. Almost everything has price on it.

first time to visit Regina Rosarii Institute with my family, at first i was hesitant because its too far and were not familar with the place "tanay" .. when i reached the place its a big "WoW" happy that we arrived safe i believe because of the guidance of Mama Mary. "Wow " because the place is solemn, fresh air will welcome you, and hear the chirping of the birds. This is the best place to pray and be with your loved ones. Visit Regina Rica ...

RICA in Tanay Rizal is an apt start for the Holy Week. It is a 13.5 hectares development for Christian worship located along the Infanta Road which ends in Quezon Province. We left Quezon City at 5:00 a.m. on a Holy Thursday and drove through Antipolo City towards Tanay through scenic mountain roads, weaving through the moderately zigzag roads. We even caught the rising sun amidst the mountain slopes of the Sierra Madre range and cloaked by the white clouds of dawn. We reached RICA after an hour and a half without traffic and just got in time before the throngs of worshippers arrive. We sat for a short orientation and started the Way of the Cross. All four of us prayed together going from one station to another, walking down and up the hilly slopes. An hour of walking tired all of us and we went to Pasilungan where we ate a healthy breakfast of lugaw (rice soup with egg), noodles and chop suey (mixed veggies without meat). Brewed coffee was good and we even had ice cream. The pesto bread was good paired with ginger jam. Yummy. We filled our spirits with prayers and our stomach with good food. Nice way to start the Holy Week.
