Hello there! Let me share with you the wonderful times we had in Ilocos. Ilocos collectively refers to the two provinces named Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. The Ilocos Region is located at the northernmost part of Luzon, Philippines.

We went to Ilocos because we had a reunion of the maternal side of the family. After the get-together, we decided to maximise our time there and enjoyed the several tourist spots in the area. Here are some of my favourites:

The first is called the Paoay Church. It is made of coral stone and has twenty-four buttresses that had helped it stand during earthquakes. Because of this, it is titled the Philippines’ prime example of an earthquake baroque architecture.

That sandstone formation behind us is called the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation. It has been shaped by clashing oceanic and weather forces. It is located on the craggy shores of Burgos, Ilocos Norte.

These windmills are located in the Bangui Wind Farm, in Ilocos Norte. Each windmill is very tall, being 70 meters high, and 41 meters long blades. Each are capable of producing electricity up to a maximum capacity of 1.65 MW, for a total of 24.75 MW

The Ilocos Region is full of breathtaking views, stunning beaches, grand structures, and more! I recommend that you explore the various beautiful places, provided that you have the time (and money). That’s all I’ve got to say here. If you liked what you see please leave a comment and/or a like below. Goodbye!
