The Cape Bojeador Light House | To Be, To Be. Tutubi.

The Cape Bojeador Light House | To Be, To Be. Tutubi. | The Traveler | Scoop.it

According to Wikipedia: "Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as Burgos Lighthouse, is a cultural heritage structure in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, that was established during the Spanish Colonial period in the Philippines.

 

"It was first lit on March 30, 1892 and is set high on Vigia de Nagparitan Hill overlooking the scenic Cape Bojeador where early galleons used to sail by. After over 100 years, it still functions as a welcoming beacon to the international ships that enter the Philippine Archipelago from the north and guide them safely away from the rocky coast of the town.

 

"The light marks the northwesternmost point in Luzon. The 65-foot-tall (20 m) octagonal stone tower, the most prominent structure in the vicinity, can be seen from as far away as Pasuquin town in the south and Bangui on the east on a clear day."

Majestically Burgos , Ilocos Norte

Majestically Burgos , Ilocos Norte | The Traveler | Scoop.it

The municipality of Burgos history tells that the Burgos was formerly called (paritan means to prohibit),  since natives of the town during those time prohibit migration of people from neighboring towns to their place. It was then eventually called Nagpartian (parti means to butcher) during the Spanish era. Nagpartian means a place where an animal was butchered, and a Spanish priest was butchered in the place.  And in 1913 it was renamed Burgos in honor of Father Burgos thru the initiative of then Ilocos 1st district representative Hon. Santiago Fonacier.

 

Located at the northwestern part of Ilocos Norte Province, the municipality of Burgos is bounded on the north by South China Sea, on the east by the towns of Bangui, on the southeast by Vintar, on the south and west by Pasuquin.
