Rusty Spiral Staircase

This is the stairway going up to the lamp area of the 1892 Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. Its a rusty piece of steel, but through these years, it is still sturdy and strong. Its quite a number of steps to climb up to the top. In the mid afternoon sun, it might require the visitor to be a little physically fit.

This lighthouse is located approximately 35 kilometers north of the City of Laoag, Ilocos Norte Province, Philippines. It is located on a small hill overlooking the South China Sea. This structure was built in 1892 and is still operating up to this date. It is considered as the highest lighthouse in the Philippines(in reference to sea level). The lighthouse signals ships that they are on the northwestern corner of the island of Luzon.
