complete Baguio experience

Challenging steps to reach Lourdes Grotto complete our Baguio trip. At first I was too excited almost running but as you go along last few steps I got so tired but it's worth it.

I visited here in Jan 2015 and it is a very popular religious place for many Filipinos to visit. Not for the unfit of faint hearted as there are hundreds of very steep steps leading to the top. However a very handy tip is to take a jeepney to the Diplomat Hotel which is higher than Lourdes Grotto and when... More

For the devout Catholics or even the non-Catholics, this is always included in the itinerary when visiting Baguio City. A challenging 252 steps is one way of going up to the grotto. But for those who are not up to the challenge (either too weak or too lazy, haha) there's an access for vehicles.

If you've try what I did, traveling alone, then chances are you will like this place for the type of peace you will experience. I'm no religious buff, but I do appreciate what sacred means especially when nature shows it to you, right in front of your eyes. Coming here is really worth while knowing that the simplest things in... More

There's not much to see of the grotto. The 282 step climb was the main challenge. Probably have to be quite religious to if pressed for time, but fine if you've a couple of days in the city.

Lourdes Grotto, Baguio, is a fine destination for religious pilgrims. The place is serene, silent, and relaxing. I suggest this place to be included on a travellers itinerary, because praying in every travel keeps us safe. You can walk your path up the 100 steps, or cut your path midway by parking your car at its midway parking. I suggest... More

the Grotto can be done via a motor vehicle, in addition to a climb up of some hundred steps from below......... this is for folks who wish to pray and meditate....... not much more, really........

We live just one block away from this place and I can say that over the years, they've improved Lourdes Grotto. This is a good place to visit especially if your a catholic. Even if not, its also good to just try climbing the 200+ stairs. I'm not saying the exact number to avoid spoiling your momentum. LOL. When you... More

I guess I can say any Baguio vacation is incomplete without a visit to the Lourdes Grotto. The 200+ steps to reach the grotto itself make it one of the "must-see, must-visit" places in Baguio. One can opt to buy candles before ascending, to light near the grotto (and say a prayer or two). One can also find vendors of... More
