Balaan Bukid, nestled in Brgy Balcon Melliza, Jordan, Guimaras, is a renowned mountain landmark housing a pilgrimage site with a church and an iconic towering cross. Its mountainous setting offers panoramic views of Iloilo City and Guimaras. The translation of its name, "Holy Mountain," aptly captures its spiritual essence.

Notably, it features a trail depicting the 14 stations of the cross, making it a favored destination for Catholic devotees, especially during the Holy Week. The Chapel of Ave Maria Purisima stands on the site, presided over by a prominent cross visible across the province. The trek to the chapel takes around 30 minutes, requiring comfortable footwear. The journey rewards pilgrims with breathtaking province views and a sacred space for prayers and reflection.
