See the religious sights of Baguio City with this pilgrimage around the summer capital’s Miraculous Marian Shrines. This is the perfect tour for those looking forward to a peaceful and less strenuous trip while enjoying the sights around the historic grotto sites and churches in the city.
You can choose to join the morning or afternoon. Once your driver picks you up within Baguio City, you will head to Our Lady of Lourdes. You can find a 252-step stairway in this church, where you can pray and meditate as you ascend to the grotto at the top. The church is typically packed with devotees seeking the blessing of the Virgin Mary during Sundays and Holy Week.
From there, you will be taken to the Lady of Brown Madonna, which is also referred to as the ‘Shrine of the Brown Madonna.’ Originally built to connect La Union and Baguio City, the shrine now stands as a place of prayer and worship for devotees and tourists. After offering a little prayer at the shrine, you will stopover for lunch at one of the local restaurants.
The tour then continues at Our Lady of Covadonga, which houses one of the most venerated Marian images in the country, The Lady of Covadonga (‘The Queen of Benguet’). A number of miracles were reported upon her arrival in the province, promoting the site as a place of faith in the mountain province.
Your next destination is the main pilgrimage destination in the city, Our Lady of the Bleeding Heart. The shrine continues to attract devotees ever since the image shed blood in 1979. Devotees here are called ‘Missionaries of the Bleeding Heart of Mary.’ Your day tour will then end at the Our Lady of Atonement, also known as the ‘Baguio Cathedral’. This church is located on top of a hill and deemed as one of the most frequently visited churches in the city. Here, you can also see Session Road and Baguio’s skyline.
