We did this before Maundy Thursday just to contemplate, which happened to be a very good place to do it. By the way, Entrance Fee is 20php per person and 10php for you to be able to go to the top of the Shrine.

The Shrine of Valour is made to give recognition and honour to the gallantry of Filipino soldiers who fought during the World War II. It was commissioned in 1966 by one of the war's veterans, the late President Marcos. Generally it is also dedicated to the soldiers who fought for the freedom of Bataan.

Somehow being in a place like this would make you appreciate everything (atleast that is how it made an impact to me), Having the view of mountains, nature in general with beautiful structures made by man it's somehow nostalgic for me plus the serenity it gives make you really have the mood for deep thinking.

I hope more people will come to places like these. Hisoric places that will surely cultivate your soul.
