  • Ermita Hill reminds me of Kamay ni Hesus in Quezon Province; long flight of stairs to a big cross. Problem is, I only thought of the similarities more than a day after my visit. If people knew what to...  more »
  • Out of all my travelling experience, this trip proved to be the most budget friendly of all. Boat ride is Php5(!) only one way. The locals told us that we could actually reach this via mini sandbar (5...  more »

  • This place is one of the must - visit tourist spot in Baler. The park is located at the top of the hill as you can see the over looking Baler Bay and the whole town of Baler. There are a lot of things to do within the park premises. You can do small hike to reach the big cross. You can make a lot of photo opportunity in every corner of the hill because of the nice garden, landscape, cottage, forest, overlooking beach, and chapel. You can do picnic under the sun. You can jog or run around. You can also do camping by putting up tent. This place is secured since it is protected by the government. The entrance fee is affordable. Furthermore, this hill is very historical because it served as a life saver of some families during tsunami a very long time ago. Once more, if you're looking for something refreshing and relaxing getaway this place is best for you.
  • You learn a bit of history at Ermita Hill when families sought refuge to this high land after a tsunami hit Baler in the 1700s. Statues reenacting a family climbing uphill is a good tourism photo spot.
  • Perfect light hike to end our first day of Baler Adventure.
  • Nothing much to see here but stairs and bunch of statues. Would be nice to have a plaque or board explaining the history of the place. But the locals along the road sells great buko juice.
  • I go here in April,13,2017
