SPANISH COLONIAL PERIOD
During the Spanish rule in 1846, the Spaniards established a
comandancia in the nearby town of La Trinidad , and organized Benguet
into 31 rancheria s, one of which was Kafagway, a wide grassy area
where the present Burnham Park is situated. Most of the lands in
Kafagway were owned by Ibaloys even prior to the appointment of Mateo
Cariño as chieftain . The Spanish presidencia, which was located at
Bagyiw at the vicinity of Guisad Valley was later moved to Cariño's
house where the current City Hall stands. Bagyiw, a local term for
"moss" once abundant in the area was converted by the Spaniards into
Baguio, which served as the name of the rancheria.
Philippine Revolution in July 1899, Filipino revolutionary
Pedro Paterno liberated La Trinidad from the Spaniards
and took over the government, proclaiming
Benguet as a province of the
new Republic of the

Tourism is one of Baguio's main industries due to its cool climate
and history. The city is one of the country's top tourist
destinations. During the year end holidays some people from the
lowlands prefer spending their vacation in Baguio, to experience cold
temperatures they rarely have in their home provinces. Also, during
summer, especially during
Holy Week , tourists from all over the
country flock to the city. During this time, the total number of
people in the city doubles. To accommodate all these people there are
more than 80 hotels and inns available. Local festivities such as the

Loakan Airport runway in the outskirts of the city
Loakan Airport is the lone airport serving the general area of
Baguio. The airport is classified as a trunkline airport, or a major
commercial domestic airport, by the Civil Aviation Authority of the
Philippines but there are currently no regular commercial services in
the airport. It is located south of the city center. Due to the
limited length of the runway which is 1,802 meters or 5,912 feet, it
is restricted to commuter size aircraft. The airport is used primarily
by helicopters, turbo-prop and piston engine aircraft, although on
rare occasion light business jets (LBJ) have flown into the airport.
Session Road , one of Baguio's primary roads
The three main access roads leading to
Baguio from the lowlands are
Kennon Road (formerly known as the
Benguet Road), Aspiras–Palispis
Highway (previously known as Marcos Highway) and
Naguilian Road ,
also known as Quirino Highway.
Kennon Road starts at Rosario, La Union
and winds upwards through a narrow, steep valley. This is often the
fastest route to
Baguio but it is particularly perilous, with
landslides during the rainy season and sharp dropoffs, some without
guardrails. The Aspiras Highway, which starts in
Agoo, La Union and
connects to Palispis Highway, at the boundary of
Benguet and La Union
provinces, and Naguilian Road, which starts in Bauang,
La Union , are
both longer routes but are much safer than
Kennon Road especially
during rainy season, and are the preferred routes for coaches, buses
Benguet-Nueva Vizcaya Road , which links
Nueva Vizcaya province, traverses the towns of
Itogon , Bokod , and
Halsema Highway , (also known as the Baguio-Bontoc Road
or the Mountain Trail) leads north through the mountainous portion of
the provinces of
Mountain Province . It starts at the
northern border of
Baguio with La Trinidad .
There are several bus lines linking
Manila and Central
Luzon, and provinces such as
