Golden Haven Antipolo
Golden Haven Memorial Park Antipolo is now in the City of Catholic pilgrimage site!
Antipolo City was named after tipolo (breadfruit) tree, which was in abundance in the area. It was the Franciscan missionaries who first build the church in the area, in 1578. However, they were replaced by the Jesuits. These new missionaries were the ones who helped organize the village into a parish. By 1601, the Christian population of Antipolo increased to 3,000 due to the people of Dumagat who came and lived in the area.
