The place is called Calvary Hill in Sirin Bgy. You can easily walk there from the bustling city market down by the water. It is a steep climb to the top but if you take it slowly you should be OK. I went for the view... I was not disappointed. I was also alone there.
What i love about the stations of the cross is the big statue of Jesus looking out across Tacloban, like it is protecting it from harm (see photo). The way up has cemented stairs, so it's not too much effort going from station to station. The view from the top is really amazing.
Agree that it needs better upkeep.
If you're in for a nice, tranquil experience or a spiritual retreat in the middle of a bustling city, check out the stations of the cross. It's down the street of Avenida Veteranos. Just ask people in the area or a tricycle driver, mention the Stations of the Cross, and they'll helpfully point out the turn off Veteranos.
