Before it became famous as a wedding church for lovers who will tie the knot, Caleruega church is known for all the Thomasian students or those who belong to the Dominican community as a house of prayer and renewal. The graduating students of the Thomasian community have their graduation retreat in the hills of Batulao in Nasugbu, Batangas.
The breathtaking view of the Church on the hill makes it a charming venue for the wedding. It became a church for weddings because of close proximity to Tagaytay where there are so many venues for the reception after the wedding ceremony.
During the early days, the Caleruega Church has the Church on the hill, the main hall, pavilions, a large garden and the dormitories. After coming back numerous times, the place has been developed and attractions were added like cottages, a campsite, a hanging garden and the tent chapel.
Aside from weddings and retreats, the place is also a venue for different recollections, prayer meetings, and workshops, youth camps, religious gatherings and seminars.
