The place is called Calvary Hill in Sirin Bgy. You can easily walk there from the bustling city market down by the water. It is a steep climb to the top but if you take it slowly you should be OK. I went for the view... I was not disappointed. I was also alone there.

What i love about the stations of the cross is the big statue of Jesus looking out across Tacloban, like it is protecting it from harm (see photo). The way up has cemented stairs, so it's not too much effort going from station to station. The view from the top is really amazing. Agree that it needs better upkeep.

If you're in for a nice, tranquil experience or a spiritual retreat in the middle of a bustling city, check out the stations of the cross. It's down the street of Avenida Veteranos. Just ask people in the area or a tricycle driver, mention the Stations of the Cross, and they'll helpfully point out the turn off Veteranos. The short,... More

There were life-sized stations of the cross on the side of a hill. It's a strenuous hike but well worth it. Go all of the way to the top and walk around the ridge of the volcano. There's a photo stop at every turn.

If you ask a tricycle driver where Calvary Hill is they will know right away. We went on a normal day and it took about 45 minutes to walk through at a leisurely pace.

This was a little climb all up hill. Very steep, but worth the trip. It is called Calvary Hill. We took pictures along the way of these life size statues. It also lacked a little care...grass needed clipping and sidewalks needed to be clear of dog pooh (which my foot found).

Best view, best art sculptures & best exercise in Tacloban, all for free.... The walk up Calvary Hill constantly provides special rewards. You do have to be any special religion to enjoy it. You can not cheat by taking a taxi or motor cycle, the only way to the top is through the giant stair climber which takes hours. The... More
