WESTERN PANGASINAN SERIES
I never thought this lighthouse could fascinate me. I have seen countless pictures of it before and nothing impressed me. I thought its just a dilapidated lighthouse build long time ago. But it is enchanting in real life. Situated in the hills of Patar, this lighthouse is more than 100 years old. It's no longer possible to climb up the deck but it didn't stop us to enjoy taking photos of the edifice and the surrounding area.
There is a building near it destroyed by countless storms, the last just a few months ago. Instead of serving as an eyesore, it complimented the lighthouse. This is the spot where Cai, darwin and most of us posed and pretended to be fashion models. hahaha
I realized just now that I got only a few angles so I am including some shots taken by other bloggers during the tour. Here's Josh Uy's take on the place. Wih his favorite subject--Cai.
And we were lucky to have traveled with kuya Estan who isa professional and an awarded travel blogger/ photographer.
The lighthouse is located in barangay Patar Bolinao Pangasinan.
It's around 5 kilometers away from Puerto del Sol, our accommodation during our stay in the town. It comes before the rock formations I featured in my earlier post, after which is the white beach area.
how to get here:
From Manila- take the bus to Bolinao Pangasin
From Bolinao town: hire a tricycle to get you to Patar lighthouse
