9.10.11 (September 10, 2011) was such a beautiful date to go for a photowalk. We (PnSers Camera Club) initially planned to go to Pakil, Laguna to visit the church and climb Mt. Pingas but due to unforeseen event (brake stock-up and heavy rains in Tanay) we got no choice but to cancel the trip to Laguna.
Thinking if we’ll go home or still continue our photowalk. A member suggested we visit Regina Rica because it’s much more closer to where We stopped.
We then drive to Sitio Aguho, Barangay Sampaloc, in Tanay, Rizal and found ourselves in this beautiful sanctuary built by the Dominican Sisters of Regina Rosarii. The whole place is a natural beauty, with hills and mountains and trees everywhere. The weather is much cooler and the whole place is serene and holy.
A 71-foot tall statue of the Queen of the Holy Rosary stands on top of one of the hill with a mini-trail going up. Candle offerings are place along the trail so anyone can lit a candle, reflect and pray.
