Cape Bojeador Lighthouse

The Cape Bojeador Lighthouse located at Burgos, Ilocos Norte was built during the 18th century.  It was built by the Spanish government to serve as a beacon for the ships that enter the Philippine archipelago from the north. This is not the tallest nor the highest elevated in the country, but it is the highest elevated original lighthouse from Spanish era that still functions today.

Located at the hill overlooking the vast West Philippine Sea, my fellows went inside to view the perimeter, while me having an ice cream at the foot of the lighthouse.
