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

We frequent Baguio city and The Grotto was not necessarily in our itinerary. But this time, with 2 other couples, we drove to the grotto to just say our prayers. To our surprise, there was a new chapel "Kapilya ni Jesus at Maria" maintained by the Jesuits. After lighting some candles and offering prayers at the Grotto, we visited this... More

Favorite pilgrimage site during Holy week. Utter a wish or your personal prayer while climbing and counting the steps, other says it 252 steps. If you are not able to climb or too tired to do so, you can get to the top through driving a light vehicle through a winding narrow and steep paved road. Under the image is... More

There may be hundreds of steps going up the Grotto but it was worth all the steps. Feeling blessed. The trees are so green and healthy... Fresh air welcomes you as you keep moving up... Serene and quiet once at the foot of the Lady. Will not be tired of going back to this blessed place.

The steps to Mother Mary represents the number of Rosary beads. You can say your rosary while doing the penitent's walk. When you reach the top, you may say your petitions to Mother Mary. After which you may light the candle you brought along. A trip not to miss if you are a Catholic...

For all Catholics, don't forget to visit the Lourdes Grotto. I strongly suggest to use the steps going to the top than renting a taxi to bring you there. There are folks selling flowers and candles for your offerings to Our Lady of Lourdes. There is small church also. Nice view from the top You can try the strawberry taho... More
