Baguio City 275
Standing on Mary Hill, Baguio Cathedral is the largest Catholic church in the city and is the center of religious activities throughout the year. Its rose-colored facade and twin spires depicts the style of neo-gothic architecture. The cathedral's structure was the brainchild of CICM (Congregatio Immaculati Cordis Mariae) Priest, Architect and Engineer, Rev. Leo Valdemans. Generous donations helped finish the parish which was only partially built in 1924. In dedication to the Blessed Virgin Mary, the parish was dubbed Our Lady of Atonement Cathedral. Enduring many plights, the Cathedral once served as an evacuation site during the Japanese occupation period in World War II. It also underwent rehabilitation after the traumatic earthquake that struck Baguio in 1990.
