The ‘power’ of the Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag is well known among devout Catholics. So much so that if they have special petitions for Our Lady, they don’t mind going on a journey to Pangasinan (north of Manila) where the holy image is enshrined.
The trip to the Minor Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary of Manaoag takes at least four hours if one is going to travel by bus.
Take a tip: the best time to visit the basilica is during weekdays and off-season. There are less people and devotees, making your pilgrimage a more pleasant one.
