Ermita Hill was historically the place of settlement of the people in Baler when “Tromba Marina” devastated the whole municipality last December 27, 1735. Beside from its interesting history, it provides a magnificent view of Baler Bay, Diguisit Beach and Aniao Islets.

Relaxing in the viewing deck is my favorite part. You get to see a great view of the ocean and the mountains plus the formation of clouds. This is the highest part in Baler so in case there's a tsunami this is the safest place...More

Went here a week after the typhoon lando hit baler. (Oct. 25, 2015) Many trees fell down. But the view at the top is still breathtaking. Still worthy to be visited. =)

To find this attraction, you have to drive slowly not to missed since there was no signage, the area was not clean full of dried leaves and trashes too. But we managed to stop and have photos with these statues of families .
