Whenever Tarlac is mentioned, you will never think of anything worth visiting there but today we discovered a place that you would not think is in Tarlac.
Nestled up in the mountains of San Jose, Tarlac you will find the Monasterio de Tarlac. It is a beautiful place which you would not think exists in Tarlac. Inside their small church is deposited a fragment of the cross where Jesus Christ was nailed. It is said to possess miraculous powers that can heal those who believe in it.
The Monasterio de Tarlac can be reached via 2 ways. The first is via Tarlac City and the other via Capas. It will take 2 hours to get to Tarlac City plus another hour to get to the Monastery.
There are picnic tables at the Monastery Grounds. There is also a souvenir shop where you can buy food items made by the monks. They also sell drinks and some biscuits, junk food here but no meals so bring your own food if you plan on being here during lunch hour.
