Every year, Filipinos show their passionate devotion of the commemoration of Jesus Christ’s Death and Resurrection. Holy Week is being observed as a week of a solemn ceremony with some religious rites and rituals. Some Filipino flagellants do modification under the sun in a bloody form while the others pay a visit to holy places. Roman Catholic and Protestant groups highly mark this week as one of the yearly vows. It usually begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Sunday. Mostly this event congregates at the middle of March or April. Holy Week is known as “Semana Santa” for Spanish and “Mahal na Araw” in Filipino.
Q-Park: A Perfect Place for Penitence
You can get through the place by private vehicle or commute along the provincial road and go straight to the main street of Barangay Magay, Compostela, Cebu. Stop at the signage and from the corner, it is about 3-4 kilometer before you can reach the main entrance of the Q-Park. You can travel via jeepney off to Compostela and then ride a motorcycle-for-hire going inside the park. A private vehicle is highly recommended since the area has limited motorcycle-for-hire going back to the main street.

Strolling around Q-Park was one of the kind moment I did for my holy week special. I got a chance to spend precious time with my parents, though it has been just once in a blue moon experience to have them in solo mode. It healed me inside and out, indeed.
