lampposts in Antipolo


Antipolo is a city in the Philippines located in the province of Rizal, about 25 kms east of Manila. It is the seventh most populous city in the country and prides itself as the "Pilgrimage Capital of the Philippines." The Marian image of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage or the Virgin of Antipolo, which was brought in from Mexico in 1626, and enshrined in the Antipolo Cathedral has had a continuous following among Filipino Catholics since the Spanish era.
