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

I like the solemnity of the area. It will take you over a hundred of stairs to go up (I forgot how many) but you can always drive up the hill and park close to the grotto itself and avoid the tedious stairs. Igorot Natives posing for pictures with tourists for a minimal amount is worth a consideration after the... More

They said there were 252 steps but we lost track of counting when we reached the second flight of stairs. Try stopping at each flight and take in the view of Baguio City. Do not forget to pray.

The church is under going major renovation. We opted not to go inside since we have an infant with us. Although, they still conduct mass despite the renovation

Unless you are a local, save yourself time and don't come here. There's no grotto. It's basically a small shrine to which you have to walk over 200 steps. The views are almost non-existant as there are too many trees on the hill. Unless you want to go for religious purposes, skip.

I cannot add more than to say this is a MUST visit when in Baguio! ... period. One can either start the steps walk up right at the beginning or be driven up till the 3/4 mark & walk a short distant before climbing up the steps to the top where the Grotto is. Roses & candles can be bought... More

My family went here to pay their respect and light a candle. We do not regret. What a nice, clean and beautiful place. It's taken good care of. Make sure you find the cheap parking at the middle of the stairs. Will save you some money for sure.

This attraction is best experienced on foot. For Catholics, it is a must to climb the stairs leading to Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and profess your spirituality and religiosity. It is a little close to 2 kms from Burnham Park via Naguilian Road. If you ask me, it is better to walk to the base of the grotto than... More
