|St William Cathedral|
The interior is also well kept.The capiz shell windows serves as ventilation inside the church.I spent 15 minutes observing the features and staring on the Retablo. So far, the St William Altar is the most adorned altar I saw in my entire tour in Ilocos Norte.
After Laoag Church we headed to the famed Fort Ilocandia. The location is quite far from the city center. The roads that leads to the hotel are narrow with few houses along the way.Fort Ilocandia is facing the South China Sea and is surrounded by vast sand dunes. Tourist are allowed to enter the hotel grounds. The lobby is a bit unconventional as part of it is alfresco. There is a lonely chandelier that lights up the lobby. As you move further into the alfresco part of the lobby (serves as "Kapihan" to the guest), you will then be ushered into a well manicured garden with statues scattered all over it.
