After visiting the province of Pangasinan, on our way home my sister recommended to take one last trip. She took us to the Monasterio De Tarlac which was one of their most visited place. It is located in San Jose, Tarlac and is known for having a Relic of the Holy Cross. It also has a 30-foot statue of the risen Jesus which is a favorite spot for visitors since it overlooks the whole area.
The drive to Monasterio De Tarlac took around 1 hour from Tarlac City. For direction, we went to Tarlac Recreation Center and Tarlac Eco-Tourism Park in San Jose, Tarlac.
After all the climbing, we headed to the souvenir shop. Cause for us to be able to complete the Monasterio De Tarlac trip, we must buy some souvenirs. For me, personally, I bought a Bamboo Alkansya because If I ever filled it with the money I know for a fact that Jesus helps me.
Visiting Monasterio De Tarlac is one of the most fulfilling moment in my life because as a Catholic I always wanted to go to places where it feels so sacred and that’s what I felt while I’m in the Monasterio.
