From Burot Beach, we took a tricycle (Php 150 per tricycle) back to the town of Calatagan, then a bus to Nasugbu (Php 40), and a tricycle (Php 20 per person) to Caleruega.

Batulao, Nasugbu, Batangas
Entrance fee: Php 30

It was a Sunday and Caleruega was silently buzzing with people. Silently, for Caleruega is a place for retreats, recollections, reflections, prayers. We weren't in our Sunday's best, only in our Sunday's best for beaches (shorts and slippers), and we looked very out of place. We quickly made our way to the red brick Transfiguration Chapel for prayers and pictures. Had we had more time (and had we been better dressed for such a place), it would have been nice to have a quiet walk in the gardens of Caleruega.

Caleruega is huge, but we only had time to see the Transfiguration Chapel (#7 on map; click to enlarge)
