LUNA. LA UNION a two part special

LUNA part 1

I’ve been dying to see this small beautiful town in LA UNION called LUNA. All I think about and speak about is LUNA. I even told DONG HO of escapeislands.com about this place and how mysterious it is. I really don’t know why but I have a thing for old buildings and structures and LUNA has its own magic. I only had one day of exploring the place and it’s not enough but I must say that I fell in love with LUNA!

my first stop was the OUR LADY OF THE NAMACPACAN CHURCH which was built in 1871.

during my church visit, I was lucky to meet the Spanish couple who visit different places in the Philippines riding their bicycle.

I’m wondering why there is a stair at both sides of the church?…

after going to the church I went straight ahead to the OLD SPANISH WATCH TOWER situated at the beach. they say that the tower has a tunnel linking to the church but it was already covered.

it is here at the beach where I met the old woman who picks stones for a living. the shoreline is covered with stones not sands.

  10. The primary reason why we visited Luna last year's because our daughter's name is Luna! Haha. I still regret not being able to visit the old Spanish watch tower :(
