Sinking Bell Tower, Laoag
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
First built in the 18th century at Laoag Cathedral, Sinking Bell Tower has gained fame thanks to its ever-shortening stature. The tower, built in an Earthquake Baroque architectural style, actually sinks into the ground an inch every year due to its heavy materials and the sandy foundation underfoot. Its builders cemented the stones together using a mixture of molasses, lime, and sand. You can't enter the tower, but take the opportunity to snap some photos before exploring the surrounding Italian Renaissance cathedral and public markets.

It has a nice view but I am wondering why it is far from the church as opposed to other bell towers.
Находится вблизи выезда из центра города к периферии. Войти не удалось, дверь была под замком. Эффектно выглядит как днем, так и ночью.Located near the exit from the city center to the periphery. Login failed, the door was locked. Looks spectacular both day and night.show original
So easy to find when you arrive at the city. This can be your landmark. It is very beautiful in the morning because the sunrise gives it a perfect color
