  • It's a shame, too, that the place was never rebuilt nor touched, because the place has a great view of Baguio City

      Dominican Hill attracts only a select group of people; the ghost hunters. Not many tourists venture into Dominican Hill, much less enter the dilapidated building.

      There is much history behind this place.

      It used to be a vacation house for Dominican Friars, was turned into a school, became a refugee camp for those fleeing from Japanese soldiers and later became a hotel.

      When it became a refugee camp, the place was bombed by the Japanese Army

      Liberation Forces and many people died here.

      Although the buildings were still standing after the war, there was extensive damage done and had to be rebuilt.

      During the 70’s it was turned to a 33 bedroom hotel, owned and operated by a faith healer named Tony Agpaoa.

      Many of the guests in the hotel were his patients, and plenty of them were terminally ill.

      When the owner died, the hotel was closed down and since then ...

      • not a lot of people have ventured into Dominican Hill.

        It is said that you will hear screams, banging doors, chattering dishes and voices of people in the middle of the night.

        Those are stories that have been told to tourists by the locals, and no one has yet proven that ghosts in Dominican Hill does exist (not that they would be able to prove such a thing).

        Because of the rich history and the tales

        about the place, adventurers, ghost hunters and psychics come to the place to seek out the spirits of those that died during the war and the patients of the faith healer.

        I am too much of a chicken to go there at night, and have only passed by the place a couple of times.

        It’s a shame, too, that the place was never rebuilt nor touched, because the place has a great view of Baguio City.
