This Calvary Hills is located at the Iguig, around 10-15 minutes from Tuguegarao. I am amazed on how they put the 14 stations together at the hill with a beautiful backdrop of the Cagayan River. The Calvary Hills is usually jam packed by people on Holy Week. I went there 1 day after the Holy Week and I was able... More

Overlooking Cagayan river and the statues are built in a hilly side of the church. If you are to do your share of sacrifices by doing your prayers for each station, well, you could feel the presence of the Lord. There are so many people visiting the place on Lenten season so it would be best to be there before... More

It's located in a scenic spot above the river. It has lifesized depictions of the stations of the crucifixion. There is a sari-sari store nearby where you can purchase water.

The calvary hills is overlooking a lake and river which has the stations of the cross of our dear Lord. Its a breathtaking landscape so to speak it is so green that you can commune with mother nature. You will also see baroque structures of the spanish era., Its an amazing hill.

Calvary Hills showcases life size statues of the Stations of the Cross. The statues are behind the old church. The place is wide so walking under the heat of the sun can be quite challenging. Bring a towel and water during the hot season.

The church is small and old but the moment you get to see the Calvary at the back of it, they have created a place for one to really ask forgiveness to our beloved Jesus. It was built on a mountain side overlooking the cagayan river .
