Without doubt my most favourite spot in Tacloban. You can walk there very easily from the centre, maybe 10mins. It's in Barangay Sirin. It's called Calvary Hill but most refer to it as the big jesus statue. You have to walk through a residential area...More

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...More

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....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...More

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...More
