    Good to see wind energy is being used. Those windmills are so photogenic.
    Museo Crisologo looks interesting with those huge sculpted works. I like the Bantay bell tower too.

    Calle Crisologo reminds me of the streets of Havana which I used to explore by night. They were populated, the same, with people dancing and chatting. I have never been so close to a wind turbine but I have always admired them. They look so small in the distance but they are actually huge!

    Ilocos remains to be one of the places i would love to visit and explore. Been there years ago but those were the days that you prefer your companion than exploring the place. Havent been to Baluarte ni Chavit as well and even Calle Crisologo.

    Ilocos provinces are two of the wonderful tourist destinations here in the country. When went there when I was just a fetus (kidding!), some of the places you mentioned were not yet there or we just didn’t go there. Is Fort Ilocandia still alive? Haha. Well anyway, visiting the windmills would always be one of the things I’ll do first when I get there again. It’s such a pretty sight to look at.

    Wooow, I really admire your strength and passion for travel considering how many places you managed to visit in such a short time. According to your post as well as photos, the region of Ilocos is a wonderful place, full of excitement and memorable attractions. I liked the cobbled street, Paoay church, the Lighthouse and the bell tower the most. However, I am sure other attractions are also great. 🙂

    ok my favorite would definitely be that insane rock formation! Sounds like a new trip to Illocos is due for you and some younger buddies to do some sandboarding and 4×4 dune adventuring!

    I went to Ilocos many years ago. I was still single then when I toured Ilocos with my friends. I plan to bring my kids here also in rhe future for our field trip. But we might ride a plane instead of taking a land trip. I was exhausted during that trip because I didn’t get to sleep during the ride.

    Been to Ilocos 5x I think. But, it keeps on amazing me everytime I go back! Now that I am married, my in laws is planning to go too and I said that it is really nice to go (it’s their first time if ever). My favorite is the Kapupurawan Rocks and Bangui Windmills!

    I want to visit the province but I have few concerns. I am always considering of bringing my baby in every trip. He will turn to 1 soon and if if a place is baby -friendly. . Like if I can enjoy even with my baby or it would be a difficult trip. I don’t think I can consider riding 4×4 if that’s the case right?

    Does ‘Norte’ mean North? And what does ‘Sur’ mean? South? Most the words mentioned in this article appear Spanish in origin to me. Is Malacanang a Filippino word? I remember Marcos very well. His wife had more than a thousand pair of shoes. The rock formation looks like a fossilized whale, does it not? And did you have dinosaurs millions of years back?

    I think the most exciting part of a journey to ilocos is the rock formations. They are simply amazing and they will keep you wondering how they were beautifully and artistically formed by nature.
