After over 100 years, it still functions as a welcoming beacon to the international ships that enter the Philippine Archipelago from the north and guide them safely away from the rocky coast of the town.The light marks the northwestern-most point in Luzon.

  • A really storied building dating back from the Spanish times. Allegedly haunted. Sweeping views of the West Philippine Sea coast as well as a big swath of Ilocos Norte. Souveneirs available upon parking. A must stop on the way to Pagudpud from Laoag.
