Prayers truly have healing powers, and there’s no better place to pray in Baguio City than at the Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto. Home to a life-sized statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the grotto is a popular pilgrimage site among faithfuls and devotees. What makes the grotto remarkable is that it is located on a hillside and one must climb 252 steps of stairs to reach Mama Mary’s statue. While the climb may be tiring, nothing can beat the mesmerizing view and the sense of accomplishment when you finally reach the top.



5. Cafe by the Ruins

Location: 25 Chuntug Street, Brgy. Rizal Monument Area, Baguio City

Here’s another crowd favorite that can help bring comfort to your restless soul through good food and refreshing beverages. As one of the best spots in Baguio for foodies, Cafe by the Ruins has a sophisticated ambiance that is relaxing and comforting. The food at the place is inspired by Cordilleran dishes and are mostly vegetable, fish, and chicken-based. You can match your chosen dish with hot beverages that can soothe your soul at the first sip, such as the Ruins Coffee, Arabica coffee mixed with cardamom, whipped cream, and cinnamon; and Rizal’s Tsokolate-eh (Rizal’s chocolate), a chocolate drink made with Malagos cocoa and carabao’s milk.


Going on a little break isn’t wrong, especially if you know that you’ve been nothing but strong and brave for the past year. This 2021, take the time to heal so you can prepare for what the New Year has in store for you. Happy New Year!
