Inspired by the Favela Paintings of Rio de Janiero, Brazil, “Stobosa” refers to 3 sitios comprising Stonehill, Botiwtiw, and Sadjap of Barangay Balili, a cluster of colorful houses that got repainted in a colorful design with theme of sunflowers and rainbows. Tourists can spot this colorful community just 3 kms from Baguio’s Central Business District, on the way to the Strawberry Farm in La Trinidad just past the welcome arch.
