Baguio City has plenty of fascinating and stunning locations to visit, the chief among which is the Philippine Military Academy. It is located at the at Fort Del Pilar, Baguio City, about 20-30 minutes from the city proper. A place symbolizing glory and discipline. This academy trains and develops a cadet to be an officer of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP). Military ceremonies are important parts of the Academy's custom that serve the dual function of rendering honors and courtesies to deserving officials and dignitaries and training the cadets through parades, precision marching , poise and discipline.
From the gate, the road will take you uphill where you can see a monument of PMA's hero, Gen. Gregorio del Pilar. PMA compounds is also called " Fort Del Pilar" in memory of the young General who died in Tirad Pass.
Then the road will bring you the "Cadets Circle" where you would find "super-sized" cadet cap sword, sword casing and gloves.
