If you're like my mother, a devoted Marian pilgrim, you will find this place delightful. Line up at the Regina Rica to enter and be taken to the Adoration chapel. The nuns are strict, so ladies wear/bring a skirt and avoid wearing anything too revealing if you want to enter the sacred part of the site but men are allowed... More

We heard so much about this place so we drop by doe a visit. A lot of devotees were there and even though,mother place was under renovation, it was well kept. A very unique experience especially if you are devoted to the Holy Virgin. It has a church, columbarium, restaurant and souvenir shops. No short or sexy outfit are allowed.... More

Located at the foothills of Sierra Madre mountains, you can expect Regina Rica to be a perfect place where you can experience a serene, relaxing, prayerful atmosphere. To maintain the sacredness of the place, the community strictly follows a dress code, shorts and revealing upper garments are not allowed. Shawls and skirts are provided for free. I was wearing shorts... More

Serene with flocks of sheeps around the statue. Clean and quiet place. Beautiful images, door , and lots of picnic places with restaurant. Lots of trees and peacocks in the picnic area with covered tables/chairs. Good supply of water in the restrooms. Staff were polite and helpful.

My family and I came to attend the mass. It was a great experience. My son ended up bathing at the well too. We were also blessed , got a rosary as a token and prayed over as my son and I are celebrating our birthday the following week.

Very good garden with lots of plants. It is a very good place to contemplate and do some soul searching. This is also a nice for Family to find quality time in the presence of Mama Mary. Not too far from Manila. the windmill is also just a stone throw away and you could easily add this to your trip... More

It was our first time visiting and it was worth it. The place is located in the mountains of Tanay which gives a scenic view of the area. The place is huge and can accommodate private vehicles. Attendants are everywhere to guide you where you can park. A very good place to reconnect with our Lord due to its tranquility.

Regina Rosarii Institute for Contemplation in Asia is a place worth seeing, even if you are not religious.The place is peaceful and surprisingly quiet (but still lots of people as it is at all major turist spots) and it is free. I had the opportunity to meet Sr Eppie in person. Which was great.
