My first Holy Week at Ilocos Norte

Despite the fear of traffic which usually happens during the holidays, we still traveled to Ilocos Norte last holy week and I’m so glad that we did it πŸ™‚

  • April 13- Maundy Thursday.

After a 12- hour travel from South, we headed to a river resort somewhere in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte.

  • April 14 – Good Friday.

We did the traditional station of the cross at St. Monica Church in Ilocos, Norte and the church is one of the best churches I’ve ever seen.

We also witnessed the traditional ‘ prusisyon’ of the saints and the statue of Christ in Laoag, Ilocos Norte.

  • April 15- Black Saturday.

We went to Saud Beach Resort in Pagudpud and even with a huge crowd, it didn’t destroy the beauty of the place.

I still can’t help but stare in awe of the beautiful sunset in Saud- it was magical.
