After rounds of exploring the food scene in Quezon, we decided to take a break from munching and stop by a tourist destination. Kamay ni Hesus happened to be near where we were staying, so we all agreed to check it out. After all, my mom loves visiting churches.

The 300-step climb
Aside from being known for its healing, Kamay ni Hesus is also famous for it's 300-step climb to the huge statue of Jesus (some say it's only about 200 but we counted and estimated the steps to be at 300). It's important to note that some of the steps are steep, so you really need a lot of energy to reach the top.

As you climb, you'll get relieved of the story of how Jesus suffered, died on the cross and eventually resurrected. During Holy Week, expect this place to be fully packed with devotees and tourist alike. as some consider climbing the steps as part of their "penitensya" in the spirit of lent.

Reaching the top gives you a sense of fulfillment, since all the effort climbing up rewards you with a great view of the statue as well as some parts of Lucban. It's also cooler on top due to its altitude and the trees, so you may want to just pause and relax there for a while.

For your pasalubong needs
Near the exit of the climb, you'll encounter pasalubong centers in case you need some for your family/friends back home. There may be better shops outside of Kamay ni Hesus, but in case you lack the time, or you just want convenience, you may buy your goods here inside.
