Simple yet fun.

Physically tiring, too many steps. But feels good afterwards. Make sure you have water or hydrated before doing the steps. People around are nice.

As devout Catholics, Filipinos never fail to always include a religious activity during their holiday. One such is the trek to visit Our Lady of Lourdes atop a hill by climbing 100++ steps. Nearing cardiac arrest, I successfully viewed the beautiful image which diminished all the pain in my knees and legs. After a moment of prayer, I climbed back... More

Went here as it's close to our hotel. The steps can be tiring so be sure to bring water. There's some view on the top, and a shrine where you can pay homage and offer your prayers. There are also strawberry taho vendors on the way up -- try buying one!

Worth climbing 200+ steps... they have parking area walking distance from the altar... few good street foods and stores for souvenirs. Breath taking when you get to the top of the stairs and see the altar. very recommended if you'll be visiting Baguio.

worth the tiring climbing of the stairs, as you reached the top you'll feel the peace and serenity... feeling close to God as if talking to him side by side with it... so enchanting

I love going here especially if it's foggy. I also got used to the steps going up and down. The view from top is rewarding too.

From the foot of the stairs, we have climbed it up up to the top where the Lady is standing. Offered prayers for every one mostly for the family members. As we descend down, we came across a souvenir shop and got hold of some items.

Located on top of a hill some kilometers outside of Baguio City proper, the shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes can be reached after more than 200 steps from the base. Generally recommended for religious purposes, there's not much this place can offer to tourists - the view of the city was not even visible because of pine trees -... More
