Must-See: The Street-Art Inspired Homes of La Trinidad
Benguet is called Valley of Colors for a reason!
La Trinidad, the neighboring town of the City of Pines, is the home of the famous strawberry fields and now, one of the biggest art pieces in the country. What was once considered eyesores by both tourists and locals have become a breathtaking view for everyone to see—a total of 180 houses painted in different vibrant and eye-catching colors.

This project under the REV-BLOOM campaign of Department of Tourism (DOT) Cordillera, a first in the Philippines, aims to promote more sustainable tourism for the region. While it has been already going on for a month, project coordinator Gloria Asagen says they aren't done yet. Once the project is complete, it will boast of bouquets of sunflowers as inspired by the favelas of Brazil.
Although the giant mural is conceptualized and designed by the Tam-awan Village artists, they are also utilizing the talents of the volunteers which includes students, policemen, and the residents of Stobosa (Stone Hill, Stone Hill, Botiwtiw, Sadjap sitios) Hillside Homes. All 2,800 gallons of paint they have used has been provided for free by Davies Paints to help the community.
