Antipolo is known to be the home of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage, Nuestra Señora de la Paz y Buenviaje. History says this miraculous icon has sailed back and forth between Manila and Acapulco eight times and, on several occassions, was credited with saving her galleon from destruction by pirates and Dutch and British blockades. The galleon's safe arrivals were attributed to the miraculous powers of the statuette. After its 8th travel, it was on 26 November 1626 when the Blessed Virgin from Acapulco was canonized by the Arcbishop of Manila, Michael O'Doherty. Thousands of devotees daily pay homage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.
Beyond this, Antipolo is a nice and quiet town on the hills, overlooking Metro Manila and Laguna de Bay. It is a rather rich area, compared to some neighborhoods of Metro Manila and has a higher cultural level. If you stay for more than a week in Metro Manila, visiting Antipolo is a must.
