Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes (San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan, Philippines)

This is the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes in Graceville, San Jose del Monte City, Bulacan which is a replica of the Lourdes Grotto in France.
It was built by the Guanzon family as an act of thanksgiving after Anita Guidote-Guanzon, wife of Horacio Guanzon, was cured miraculously from
cancer when she came back home from a pilgrimage in Lourdes, France in 1961. The Grotto was inaugurated on February 11, 1965.
There are claims that the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes is not recognized by the Catholic Church. It’s excommunicated due to ownership reasons.
According to stories, the Diocese of Malolos wanted that the affairs regarding the Grotto be run by them and that the whole property be donated To them, but the Guanzon family refused it to happen.
