Places to Visit in Antipolo

My husband originally wanted to go to Cagayan Valley to explore the caves and other tourist spots while APEC is happening in Metro Manila, unfortunately I got sick. I knew I wouldn't be able to handle the long drive and extreme heat in Cagayan Valley. When I felt better, I immediately planned a three-day Sagada trip, but that too was shelved as there were no accommodations available for November 18 to 21. My classmate who's based in Baguio also discouraged me to go in the City of Pines as more people flocked the place.

Having a determined attitude, I didn't allow to miss the opportunity of long weekend to pass by without a family adventure. We headed east and decided to check out places to visit in Antipolo.

Hinulugang Taktak

Hinulugang Taktak was declared a National Park in 1990 and a Protected Landscape in 2000. It was rehabilitated and reopened to the public last February 13, 2015. Hinulugang Taktak is in Barangay Dela Paz in Antipolo City, on Taktak Road off Sumulong Highway. 

Parking and entrance is free. All you have to do is sign the names and point of origin.

Swimming is free, too, but it was not in our itinerary.

We were supposed to have picnic in the area but the smell coming from the falls does not coordinate with our plan. So we just stayed for awhile and took some photos.

The clean restrooms make up for the not-so-nice smell from the outside. Plus, entance and use is free unlike other parks we've visited.

Antipolo Cathedral

The Antipolo Cathedral, also a national shrine (National Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage), in P. Oliveros St.Antipolo, is a favorite pilgrimage site. This is where we actually prayed to have children.

For mass and vehicle blessing, contact (632) 697-0274;

Pinto Museum

This beautiful contemporary art museum sits on a 1.2 hectare property also known as Silangan Gardens located in 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights Subdivision, Marikina. An entrance fee of P20 will be collected for the road use, according to the guard.  

I’ve been wanting to check Pinto Art Museum after Steph Lopez and PJ Valenciano told me how beautiful this place is. Well, they were right because everywhere we looked is a visual a treat. Every turn of the corner reveals  lovely art pieces that will surely be enjoyed by everyone -be they art critic or not. 

Pinto Art Museum is located at 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights, Antipolo, Rizal. Contact info: 6971015. Email: Facebook page: Pinto Art Museum.

Mystical Cave

Mystical Cave is located in Sitio Boso-boso, Barangay San Jose. I'll be writing about nore about this in the next few days.


We visited the place weeks earlier. Click the photo to read more of Luljettas.
