Visit the church early in the morning to enjoy the serenity and holiness of the place. After 7 in the morning the influx of tourist and the locals alike causes distraction when praying and meditating

this is another non-negotiable tourist spot that we need to visit every time we are in baguio. a melting pot for catholics from all walks of life. it can be accessed from the session road by climbing the 100-step steep staircase. if you're not up to it, you can simply walk your way up from the post office side.

the Church has survived the japanese bombings during WW II and even the strong earthquake in 1990, proving its resilience from disasters.

the hill where it currently stands is named Kampo by the ibaloi people, the indigenous tribe that originates from the highlands of the cordillera region. this is the biggest Church of worship in baguio for Catholics.

Beautiful sanctuary for prayer and reflection. The warm white lights add to the serenity that this place offers to every visitor.

A good starting point to roam in the City of Pines. First travel to Baguio since 2014 this church did not change so much only that for me it is getting tinier the last time I saw it. Still an icon cathedral in the city with access via Porta Vaga or the stairs from Session Road. Make sure to pay a visit whenever you are in Baguio.

A visit to this cool, pine-laden city 5,000 feet above sea level is not complete unless you pray in this magnificent cathedral situated at the very top of the downtown district. Afterwhich you can stroll down the famous Session Road and enjoy all the quaint shops and cafes.

Having survived a Japanese bombing during World War II and the infamous 1990 Luzon earthquake, the Cathedral still stands proudly overlooking Baguio's downtown district. If you're walking along Session Road or coming to/from SM, it's impossible to miss. Facing the cathedral, head towards your left to get to the prayer area where you may opt to light a candle and say a short prayer. If you want to offer a mass intention, head towards the rear of the cathedral where you'll find the parish office. They'll be charging a small fee.

If you find yourself hungry or thirsty, there are several cafes and tea shops located very near the Cathedral; a local mall's entrance (Porta Vaga) is also nearby.

A very important tip: don't bring a car and hope to get a parking space on Sundays. Also, only mass goers are allowed to park.

Parking - 10 for 1 hr. 100 for 2 hrs. 500 PER SUCCEEDING HOUR. 1500 for cars leaving after 8pm. (we failed to see this advisory to be honest but still find it overpriced)

They have a Figaro onsite so we decided to have dinner right after the 7pm mass. The guard was charging us 1500 as their gate closes at 8pm. They should allow tickets to be validated if you ate dinner there anyway, as it is in the same vicinity.

Ended up paying 500 to the personnel who did not issue a receipt and obviously just pocketed the money.

Yes we understand that Baguio is a nice place but limited Parking only, but charging 500.00 pesos for 2 hours. We can afford to pay but the main concern here is considering that this is a church!! The charge is too much Never to visit this again Greed of Catholic Church

After visiting Glenn 50's Diner, Laperal White House, Mines View, been to SM Baguio to buy some new clothes and check out what's on sale, we then headed to the famous church in Baguio, the Our Lady of the Atonement Cathedral beside Session road.

We were supposed to head to this church upon arrival to Baguio City to give thanks for our safe trip way up to the city, but unfortunately, we came in too early too late for the church mass. And unfortunately again, when we got to the church, there's no scheduled mass in the afternoon.

I really loved this church from the first time we visited this church a long time ago, back when my status is still "In a Relationship" and not "Married". I have this dream that someday when we decided to renew our vows and finally decided to have a church wedding ceremony, we will be blessed in this church. Oh, what a dream.

The church is located in Upper Session Baguio City, the church architecture is very romantic and vintage, not your typical kind of church, that's why most women dream of having their wedding done here.

Apart from being a heritage site, the distinctive pink facade is very feminine, hihihi, so girly.

And how about the aisle? Oh, the aisle is very ideal for women who want their wedding to be very dramatic and considering their long aisle who most girls consider on their wedding day.
