  • I was able to attend mass @ 6:30 am, going there by walking alone from my hotel.. At least I was able to pray during my short stay.. A very solemn church for me..
  • Not as grand as other churches in the PH but its simplicity and quiet charm best suites the City where it is at.
  • It’s not as imposing or grand as the other well-known cathedrals in the Philippines but it has its charms, particularly its soft pink walls and the monuments in front of the church.
  • The place is solemn and holy, you can feel as if Christ is there. The first liturgical mass is celebrated in ilokano language followed by the next mass in english language. Comfort room is located at the right side of the church. You can also have picture taking in the small terrace with nice view.
  • This church is peaceful even though lots of people just come and go. The peacefullness can still be observed. It rise up the top of the mall.

Where to stay in Baguio

Look for upscale accommodations near Burnham Park, where you can check into a room with views over the central green area. Some resorts farther out of the city center make use of the increase in space by offering pools, onsite restaurants, and other amenities. Bed and breakfasts provide the more budget-conscious traveler with a comfortable place to rest after a long day of adventuring. You'll find these establishments on the outskirts of town, or along the side streets in and around the city center.
