Lourdes Grotto is a Catholic shrine and place of meditation in Baguio. It is located on a high hill in the western part of the city where visitors will find the image of the Lady of Lourdes. The grotto is a favorite pilgrimage site during Holy Week most especially during Holy Thursday and Good Friday. Access to the top of the grotto could be made by climbing its 252-step staircase or by driving a light vehicle through a winding and steep paved road.
Laid upon one of the hills at Camp John Hay, the Cemetery of Negativism (also known as the Lost Cemetery) was established by the base's commanding general John Hightower in the early 1980s. The place is a symbolic site for the burying of any kinds of negativities, in thoughts, emotions, or attitude.
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.
