  • Sta. Monica Church

    a little out of the way from the usual ilocos hub, but we visited sta. monica monica is the mother of st. augustine. story says that she prayed for the conversion of her sinner-son (st. agustine), which of course happened and st. agustine became one of the most popular saints/patron.

  • Lighthouse atop a hill

    It is said that the during a clear day, the light coming from the lighthouse can be seen 14 nautical miles away. It is very visible from the road, although a lot drives past it on the way to Pagudpud.Located in the town of Burgos, a small road off the national highway heads upward. Although the path is a bit winding and steep, it is cemented.

  • Big waves beaches

    Pagudpud is not only known for its white sand beach but also its big waves. If you dont know how to swim you should be extra careful for you might be carried off by the waves.

  • Slightly leaning bell tower

    Bacarra is known for its leaning bell tower that collapsed in a 1984 earthquake. What remains of the tower can be seen from the national highway. However, because it is at the center of the town which is around 1.5 kms. off the highway, most travellers skip it and continue their journey to the next town.

  • Explore while you're there!

    President Quirino Bridge over Abra River This river is sooo wide! It's breathtaking at sunset! Sinking Bell Tower This is located in the town of Laoag. We were just walking around, looking for something to buy, when we passed by this tower. It's old and it looks like it's barely standing. It's definitely a landmark in the city!
