Driving to the city known as the “Little Rome of the Philippines” is now easier and faster with the road improvements in the Southern Tagalog region. I really like it that the SLEX extension or the Toll Road 3, because it connects the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) to the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road Tollway (STAR Tollway), cutting down travel time and skipping the congested Maharlika Highway. Motorists can now reach Lipa City exit in a matter of minutes from SLEX.
It wont get its name “Rome of the Philippines” if Lipa City is not home to several Catholic churches, convents, seminaries, catholic schools, and retreat houses. Lipa hosts an annual national Marian Pilgrimage at Our Lady, Mediatrix of All Grace Parish Church, which has become a year-round destination for Catholics and other pilgrims. The Archdiocese of Lipa, whose seat is at the landmark San Sebastian Cathedral, serves the faithful in the province of Batangas.
Lipa is one area that still offers spacious residential farm lots for young urbanites and executives, starting and expanding families, leisure farmers, horticultural hobbyists, retirees and balikbayans. Tierra Maria Estates, located at the heart of Lipa City, offers affordable lots, and a unique opportunity to build a dream home close to nature. With only 320 lots, Tierra Maria Estates, with residential estate farm lots that range from 750 to 1200 sq. meters, is designed to be a neighborhood with a serene environment that is very well within the reach of everyday comforts.
Inside the confines of the naturally flora and fauna-rich Tierra Maria Estates, families can enjoy activities such as bird-watching, swimming, badminton and picnics in the lush environs of the farming subdivision. The nicely-paved roads of Tierra Maria Estates follow the inherent contours of the land and complement the natural beauty of its surroundings.
