How many steps does it have?

We went here to experience the feeling up there and meditating as well. And it went well. This is also the place where me and my wife tasted our first strawberry taho and pinipig and honey.

I grew up near this place and when I was a teen, this would be the place I'd go to if I didn't want anyone to find me. So how many steps does it have? You have to go and count it yourself, because if I told you, where's the fun in that? ;)

We went to grotto to light a candle to my late sister, we have to walk 252 steps, there is rest sit after 20 stairs once you reach the top is all worth it as the view is fantastic. You see the whole Baguio city and the breeze feel fresh. The church is beautiful you can relax on the top

This is not really an attraction, It's a place for Catholic devotees. People mostly go here to pray and light candles and that's it.

if you want exercise then this is the place to go, over 100 steps to the top, not much to see but a nice place.

It's a nice place for an indirect work out. A lot of stairs going up but i enjoyed the experience nonetheless. Felt very fulfilling upon reaching the top. Peaceful too~ Don't forget to pray :)

Nice Shrine, it is a bit of a walk up all the stairs, but that is part of the experience, to sacrifice, even if its walking up stairs. If you do not buy candels at the base, there are some in a honesty box (where you just drop the money in to take a candle) for you to use.

Get ready to climb the stairs and see the Grotto at the top. The church beside it is really nice and solemn. You can brings kids. Don't forget to say a prayer when you do...

The Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto in Baguio City is 252 steps up! A very nice climb indeed. I did this without any problems at all. For those who cannot, you can actually drive up and get down right where the Grotto is located. Peaceful, meditative experience.
