Patrimony

Weird Space

Did a mini heritage and nature tour of the east today. Ilocos is not Ilocos without the uncorrupted places linking to the olden past. Hoping what our forefathers have rooted remain for centuries to come. Our identity, we’ve been known as an oasis away from the city.

Please stop turning the province into something we are not.

Vintar Dam, after all these years, is still beautifully arcane.

A blessed Christmas to all!

Vintar: A town less traveled

Roadside Bench

Not much has changed in Vintar, an Ilocos Norte town located a little northeast of Laoag City. The less-adulterated laid-back charm is still there. You ought to love this quaint town!

Eco-friendly Town

To the miners eying Vintar… please leave this gorgeous place alone!

Back to basics… Vintar through my eyes. Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them.

The Vintar Dam, located in Parparoroc, used to be one of Ilocos’ key tourist spots. Though the government is putting efforts to bring back the old glory of the picturesque place, the vintage viewdeck remains for a good dose of nostalgia. Almost done is a new multi-purpose function hall, right where I’m standing (in next photo).
