“Workout for the body and soul”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

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 commute from the city. Added exercise! Plus you get to walk the streets of Baguio usually not frequented by travelers. It is an opportunity to see Baguio through the eyes of the locals. Enjoy the view of Baguio's skyline. Treat yourself to yummy taho with strawberry preserves. On the way back, pass by the city hall. Do this early in the morning.

“Stairway to Heaven”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is a " stairway to heaven ", there are 195 steep steps to climb to reach the top. I noticed a lot of visitors who came here were blind. Once I reached the top, I felt blessed. The " Lady of Lourdes " ( Mother Mary ) statue is there, u can light a candle and pray. Overall it was quite a religious experience.

“It's The Climb”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

It's worth climbing up to the Lady of Lourdes Grotto. You can offer prayer when you reach there. You can buy a candle for Php3 located at the left side of the grotto. You can light the candle in the right side (designated area). Candles may be bought there but they are a little bit pricey for 5 small candles for Php20. You can also offer flowers and can also be bought. View of the city can also nice from up there.
