This place is one of the interesting tourist spots of Baguio City. Located just before entering La Trinidad, Benguet. No entrance fee. The stairs is worth to conquer. Also enter the church and know your luck.

Just a quick visit of the Bell Church, it has a great view of the houses built in the mountain. Pay tribute to their Gods. Astound with the Pagoda and beautifully landscaped garden.

Their location is just a walking distance from our hotel. It's good that they don't have any entrance fees. Even from afar it looks nice. I suggest this place to everyone who wants to complete their checklist of tourist attractions in Baguio City.

Try a visit in the morning when crowds are thinner. It is worth at least one visit. The touristy atmosphere when the noisy crowds with their gadgets descend on the place is a put-off.

I knew when I asked my husband to visit Bell Church that it was Chinese but I wasn't really expecting what we saw. Bell Church is a beautifully peaceful place. Its a bit outside of Baguio in La Trinidad- only a few kilometers and definitely worth the visit.

Bell Church is actually a Chinese church, on the hill, so it is interesting. Everything looks Chinese - right from the arches - and you can easily confuse it for a Buddhist Chinese temple. It was ok from this point of view - I expected the views to be good, but all we could see was lots of clustered tin... More

One of the tourist spots to go to when you're looking for a peace and quiet place to reflect. Though this is a known place for Buddhist, anyone can go here and a stop by before going to other places in Benguet. When you're bringing kids with you, make sure to take turns with adults as they don't allow kids... More

I literally grew up playing in this area when I was a kid, My grandfather was once a member of that church, we are not. Anyway, Bell church was established during the 50's at km 5 La trinidad, Benguet. There were 8 founders, all from China. When their organization became bigger, they purchased that lot in Km3 where the current... More
