4. Casa Vallejo – This hotel is one of the oldest remaining structures in Baguio, even bagging recognition from the city as one of the 10 oldest institutions in the city, thus it has survived the difficult times of the past. From being a German Prisoner of War Detention Center in 1917, to housing key personnel in the American times to finally becoming a hotel in the 1920s up to the present, Casa Vallejo has seen it all, so it is not a wonder that stories of the supernatural continue to haunt this historical site.

This is just one of the eerie encounters of cab drivers and locals with the Lady of Loakan. It is believed that the ghost was once the girl raped and tortured at Loakan Road.
