Lourdes Grotto is located in western part of Baguio City. During Holy Week, the place is a favorite site for pilgrimage. Going on top of the grotto takes about 250 steps. When you reach the top, you may light a candle and say a prayer you want.
After our visit to Lourdes Grotto, we then proceeded to Diplomat Hotel which is only about a few meters away, located on top of the Dominican Hill.
The Biggest Ten Commandments Tablet
Baguio holds the Guinness World record for the biggest Ten Commandments Tablet with its 152.90 square meter (1,650 square foot) high square edifice. It is also located on top of Dominican Hill and inside Diplomat grounds. The Ten Commandments tablet was inaugurated by city officials last October 2011.
We only stayed for a while and prepared ourselves for a 6 hour travel back home to Manila.
We never got the chance to stop by at Lion's Head on our way to Baguio on our first day so before finally heading back to Manila, we stopped by in this popular landmark for a souvenir photo. So true, a trip to Baguio would not be complete without stopping by in the famous 40-ft Lion's Head, located a few kilometers from the Kennon Road view deck. Lion's Head was carved by a Cordillera artist from a limestone boulder.
Mcdo and Jollibee
This is not really a part of itinerary but I want to include this in my Baguio Trip Day 3 entry as our first and last stop. It is good to feel young sometimes. Our first stop was an early breakfast at Mcdo. Obviously, at Mcdo with our hand gestures, "At home ako dito." *Not a paid post* :) A photo of us full of energy with our long trip that's about to begin that day..
and our last stop few more minutes before home on the third day, a quick dinner at Jollibee. Sa Jollibee, Bida ang Saya. :) The kids all looked very tired but we're almost near Manila.
I wish I could stop the time and spend more nights and days in Baguio. I love the atmosphere, the weather and the people. pine trees, night market, downtown and most of all, I love the trip with Mendiolables! Awesome!
