It’s been quite a while since my last travel. I love to travel and this time I decided to know Cebu. To do this, I needed to visit the well known “Queen City of the south”, Cebu City. Cebu is one of the top tourist destinations in the country, no wonder this place was dubbed as it is. Many local and international tourists flock this city to experience their beautiful beaches, majestic falls and rich heritage sites.

Like many people, I went to Simala in Sibonga, Cebu. This monastery was popularly known as Simala Shrine or Simala Church. 

In front of the monastery, just before stepping foot on the Shrine’s main entrance, you will find many people selling different kinds of souvenirs. Upon entering the monastery, I was amazed because it is like a castle that you can only see in Europe. According to internet sites, this monastery was built in 1998 by the Marian Monks from Pampanga.

After many years, many people and devotees claimed that they encountered miraculous events thru the intersession of Mama Mary. No matter how far this place is from the main city of Cebu, many people are drawn to visiting this Shrine, carrying with them their deep faith on the miracles that they believed to be answered thru prayers. I am a Catholic and I believe in miracles. This is why I went to this Shrine to seek help and I know that my prayers will be answered.

How to go there?

From the hotel, I went to South Bus terminal and wait for the bus going to Sebonga. The fare is P100.00 and it took 2-3 hours it depends on the traffic situation.
