Monasterio de Tarlac (Relic of the True Cross)
Brgy. Lubigan, San Jose, Tarlac
The Monasterio de Tarlac was established in 2003 as the hermitage house for five (5) monks of the Priory of the Servants of the Risen Christ (SRC), a congregation of monastic brothers (more appropriately addressed as Frater) led by its Prior, Frater Ronald Thomas Cortez, SRC or Fr. Archie to his friends. The rather solitary and prayerful life in the monastery took an unexpected turn when it became the fitting shrine of the authentic relic or fragment of the True Cross upon which Jesus Christ was crucified and died in Golgotha.

Bo. Pag-asa, Bagac, Bataan

San Antonio, Zambales
An undeveloped paradise tucked into the Zambales mountains, some five kms away from Capones Island in San Antonio, Anawangin beach is a popular camping site among outdoor and mountaineering groups. The unusual presence of pine trees on the beach instead of the expected palm trees makes the place a photographer’s choice. Its cascading yet refreshing crystal clear stream outlined by tall pine trees provides a respite to the intrepid traveler. Its near white sand courtesy of Mt. Pinatubo is a setting for a wonderful playground for beach lovers.

Lake Caliraya, Laguna
Interestingly, Lake Caliraya in Laguna is a man-made lake situated in three towns - Lumban, Cavinti and Kalayaan. In 1937, a US Army Engineer created Lake Caliraya by flooding the Cavinti valley of Sierra Madre in order to generate hydroelectric power for Metro Manila. Entrpreneurs then saw the potential of the area and built two communities as ecological destinations where one can enjoy nature's unspoiled beauty. The man-made lake covers partly submerged land areas and this resulted to numerous islands complete with coves. These islands are now built with vacation houses private villas, and resorts.
