Session Road marks Baguio's center of commercial activity. It is home to many savvy restaurants, bars, surplus boutiques (ukay-ukay), hotels, bakeries, movie houses, and drugstores. Covering from Luneta Hill to Baguio City Market, Session Road was named after the First Session of the Second Philippine Commission as its path led to its venue, the Baden Powell Hall.
Named after Daniel H. Burnham, the American architect who mapped the urban blueprint for Baguio City, Burnham Park is a 33 hectare garden of child-like amusement. Burnham Lake, which sits at the heart of the park, is busy with activities like boating (P200, up to 8 people) and paddle-boating (P150, up to 5 people), with an optional boatman (P50). Other activities in the park include biking (P40-50/hour) and photoshoot in tribal costumes (P10/shot). There's also the skating rink, the Orchidarium, and the Athletic bowl.
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.
