The city of Antipolo is widely known as the “Pilgrimage Capital of the Philippines” because it is the location of many imposing churches and cathedrals that house the relics and images of venerated saints, resulting in many people even making pilgrimages of sorts to visit and/or pray in these places.
Of course, there is more to Antipolo than just religious visits. Located just 26-kilometers to the east of Metro Manila, the capital city of Rizal is a popular place to consider buying a new home and turn pilgrimage into residence thanks both to its proximity to the National Capital Region while also having properties for sale that are comparably more affordable.
A laid-back respite from the bigger cities
Although an immediate neighbor of Metro Manila, the lifestyle in Antipolo is a stark contrast to the capital region. With comparatively more open spaces, the city is an escape from the busier metropolis. Along with its famous religious landmarks, Rizal is filled with interesting cafes, overlooking establishments, and several notable nature spots.
These include Hinulugang Taktak, a location that features a waterfall and park; the widely known Pintô Art Museum; and the Casa Santa Museum, a home-turned-museum featuring a large and priceless trove of Santa Claus-themed figurines and related items.
The city’s laid-back atmosphere also lends itself well to learning, and families raising children can count on the city’s over 65 public schools and 193 accredited private schools for their education needs. In addition to these are four universities/college satellite campuses in the city: the state-run University of Rizal, Antipolo Institute of Technology, De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde, and Our Lady of Fatima University.
Investing in a home in Antipolo
Although homes for sale in Antipolo are relatively low-priced, those who presently live in the city don’t just do so because homes there are comparatively more affordable than that of Metro Manila. Having more developable land, the city features homes other than the condominium units most commonly found in the National Capital, allowing property seekers to live and invest in more traditional houses and lots while not going too far from the Metro.
With over 450 residential subdivisions in the area, those looking to live in Antipolo are hardly ever left wanting when it comes to homes and communities to live in. In fact, property choices in the city have continued to be among the most extensive in the Philippines that have helped it stand out as a residential and commercial hub within the Greater Manila Area.
