It was already late afternoon when we traveled to a winding road going up a hill to our last spot in Ilocos Norte that day.
Once we got out of the van, we were welcomed by this spectacular view of the vast landscape and sea. We were on top of the Vigia de Nagpartian Hill and at our back is the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse.
Also known as Burgos Lighthouse, this is a cultural heritage structure in the province that was built on March 30, 1892 during the Spanish colonization in the Philippines. It's 65 feet tall. The lighthouse was as the guide used during the early galleons in t ...

As mentioned on my blog about Paoay Ilocos Norte I've been into many attempts on visiting the place and at last, the month of Feb-ibig gave me the chance to visit Ilocos with a wanderful soul. My experience as first timer on the place really teaches me to wander wholeheartedly. Seriously, I and my friends just don't even know the e ...
As part of our Ilocos adventure we visited the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. This 20 meter octagonal stone tower was established during the Philippine Spanish Colonial period. That still functions as a welcoming beacon to the international ships that enter Philippine Archipelago. We got there through a motorcycle from Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, another nice place to visit in Burgos, Ilocos Norte.
Being part of the cultural heritage structure, it is really normal to have an entrance fee that is use for the maintenance of the building. There is a 10 pesos entrance fee in the lighthouse. The lig ...
