Padre Pio Shrine is located at Barangay San Pedro, Santo Tomas Batangas. My family and I went there this morning. The shrine compose of two chapels and the mass alternates between. There has a wide parking a lot if you have your own car when you go there. There are 3 jars place in there wherein you can get holy water but you must bring your own bottle. Souvenir shops are also within that place wherein you can buy it in affordable prices. What is god in there was the blessings before the mass gets over. The priest uses spray gun to shower the people who attended the mass. When going it is a bit traffic because the road is very stip where 1 car at a time can occupy the way. But other than that it was fun to visit that place.
