Laoag City Travel Guide: 154 reviews and 508 photos
One of the cities in Ilocos Norte Province that should be on anyone’s list is Laoag. It is classified as one of the first class cities in the Philippines and is the capital of its province. It also stands as the industrial and commercial hub of the area. Its coastline to the west is bound by the South China Sea while other borders to east are bound by the Cordillera mountain range
The city’s name literally means ‘light’ in the local dialect.
St. William’s Cathedral is a church in Laoag City. It was built in 1612. It is known for its Italian Renaissance design and it’s Sinking Bell Tower, which sinks into the ground at a rate of an inch a year.
This church was damaged by hurricane in 1640, by earthquake in 1706, by fire in 1843 and restored in 1880.
