Due to Baguio's cool mountainous weather the city is a treat compared to hot, sweltering lowland Luzon. Baguio was established by the Americans in 1900 at the site of an Ibaloi village. At an altitude of 1600 meters or 5200 feet the climate is cool and temperate. Baguio's nickname is the "City of Pines" and has become the center of commerce and education in Northern Luzon and so the seat of government of the Cordillera Administrative Region.
