The Changing Face of Sagada

As tourism continues to make inroads to Sagada, new structures are constantly springing-up.  The main drag is increasingly being lined by cafes, restaurants, and accommodations.  On my last trip there in the first week of November, noticing all the construction going on, I decided to take pictures of the local houses with their distinct features.  Maybe, it won’t be long before these will be replaced by commercial establishments.  I hope not.

Some houses have been repurposed to become lodging places such as Grandma’s Yellow House.

The American-era St. Theodore Hospital is iconic of the American country style architecture that one finds in the Cordilleras where the Americans set foot such as Camp John Hay and in Sagada.
