    Baguio Cathedral

    Baguio Cathedral

    The cathedral is located on a hill right off of Session Road. From town, you can either walk (maybe 15 minutes or so), take a jeepney or a taxi. All cabs are pretty much metered. We spent around 29 pesos from Burnham Park to the Cathedral. The cathedral was heavily bombed during WWII, when many people used the church as a refuge for over 5,000 locals. Most of the victims are buried in the nearby cemetery.

    The modern looking cathedral has a clock on one of it's spires. We happened to visit just at the end of mass. This was really interesting as many people were waiting outside, since the cathedral was full. Catholicism is the primary religion in the Philippines and very popular in Baguio.

    Visit the Baguio Cathedral

    Me at the Baguio Cathedral

    I was told being a child that if you visit for the first time in a church of a place, you should make a wish and your wish will come true! So, why not visit the Baguio Cathedral when you are visiting Baguio?

    The Baguio Cathedral offers mass on a daily basis if you are a pious Roman Catholic! If you are not, then just go there and check out the tinted and painted windows. The walls of the church were made of mahogany- the national tree of the Philippines!

    There are parkings at the church. In fact, it is better to park there and walk down the steepy stairway going down to Session Road (that's a great tip for tourists who brought their own transportation).

    Cathedral/Lady of Lourdes

    Baguio Cathedral and the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes which sits on top of Dominican Hill are city landmarks. Devotees prefer to climb the 252-step ascent than drive through a winding road to reach the shrine.

    Walk the Our Lady of the Atonement Cathedral famously known as Baguio Cathedral along Session Road. Your Baguio City visit isn't complete without visiting the rose colored cathedral.
