Because your journey to the North wouldn’t be complete without visiting these two prominent landmarks.
First thing: our visit to Cape Bojeador Lighthouse in Burgos town made me realize how something so old and weathered can still serve its purpose.
A creation of the 1890s, Cape Bojeador lighthouse still does its job as a beacon to all ships entering the Philippine territory from the North. With the winds blowing so hard that day, it was quite unnerving to climb the lighthouse’s steep, winding staircase. But it was refreshing to be rewarded with this view.
The lighthouse’s main beam is now powered by modern solar panels.
There was even a mini-museum on the ground floor.
You’d love seeing Cape Bojeador if you’re into meaningful old things. The place has been cited both as a National Historical Landmark and a National Cultural Treasure.
Bangui windmills, on the other hand, were the second windmills I saw in the country, after the wind farm in Mahatao, Batanes. They never fail to leave people in awe at their size, but of greater importance is their role in providing an alternative source of energy.
The presence of souvenir stalls selling miniature windmills proved to be a charming addition to the site. Besides, the vendors were never obtrusive.
Once our group finished taking pictures and looking at the magnificent windmills, it was time again to enjoy the breeze and gaze at the beautiful beach!
