Ilocos Norte📍Cape Bojeador Lighthouse

We ended our Bagui adventure  with a visit to an old Light house named 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 common 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 light house overlooks the vibrant sea of the north. 

For some, hearing the word “light house” sounds common, per say “just a light house” that's it, but for me it is remarkable that until now it has been preserved as one of Burgos, Ilocos Norte’s cultural heritage structure. When going places, I love seeing those old structures, simply because for me old structures have great stories behind, including those creepy ghost stories LOL.

Lighthouses are one of the amazing places and structure for me since it is, and travelling means to live, explore and discover new things, I never missed out to collect good photos. Here are our Cape Bojeador Lighthouse memorabilia. :)
