TRAVELS: Bell Tower, Ilocos Sur

Bantay Bell Tower is located in the Bantay District of Vigan. This is a WatchTower that was built on 1591. Local Tourists can see the panoramic view of the Ilocos Sur once they climb up the stairs at the top of the tower. Unfortunately for us, we were not able to see what's inside but nevertheless, the view outside of the Bell Towers really justifies its historical and cultural significance.  According to history, this watchtower was used during the World War I and II against the enemies' invasion. Now, it has become one of the tourist destination that tourists, like me, should not miss out.

Here are the pics we took when we were in Ilocos Sur.

St. Augustine Church is just a walking- distance away. In here you will see the intricate details of the church because of its facade. This church was built on 1590. Tourists can also enter inside the church to see its historical significance.

Come and Visit Ilocos! It's more fun in the Philippines!
