One of the most famous tourist spots in Davao City
is the Shrine of the Holy Infant Jesus of Prague. Situated on top of Matina Hill is this quaint and serene place of worship.
It is surrounded by rolling grass and spots of century mango’s (more than 30 years old), which makes this an ideal place to meditate and commune with the Lord. One other unique feature of the Shrine is that it has no four walls bounding it, but rather, it is a collection of different open air Chapels. It has to be noted also that dating in this place is frowned upon, as well as making it a destination for boiterous activity. There is no entrance fee when entering the Shrine but please, mind the silence. The Shrine isn’t open 24 hours so don’t try to go there at the dead of night (or at least past 6PM) and expect the gates to be open, unless of course there is Mass scheduled.
How to get to Shrine of the Holy Infant Jesus of Prague
In order to reach this place, one can take a tricycle from the base of the Matina Hill or if one has a car, can either enter via the base or by the Diversion Road exit.
