Welcome To Laoag
Laoag City, a vibrant and dynamic growth center in the north. It boasts of graceful, historic churches, deep aquamarine-colored seas, panoramic vistas of rugged mountains, hidden waterfalls and a multihued history that whispers of gold mines, bloody revolts and an interesting window to Philippine national politics.
In Laoag, not to be missed are the massive bell tower of Saint William Cathedral, also known as the Sinking Bell Tower, Iloko Museo and the Tobacco Monopoly Monument.
