Philippines' 'pilgrimage island'

An island in the northern Philippines has been designated "pilgrimage island" where people can spend time for prayers and meditation especially during the Holy Week.

The main feature is a 56-foot image of 'Christ the Savior' that stands on the highest part of the island surrounded by life-sized scenes of Christ's Passion.

At the foot of the image of Jesus, one can have a 360-degree view of the 1,844-hectare marine sanctuary, which is popularly known in the Philippines as the Hundred Islands.
