Going Loco over Ilocos: Candon


Perhaps it was fate that led us to Candon. We hopped on a Partas bus as we initially intended to leave and go back to Manila. But suddenly, we decided to make a side trip to Candon and visit the uncle of Pao who lived there. Our itinerary did not indicate any side trip to Candon, but we felt very spontaneous anyway and see Candon before we finally left for Manila.

And it was a sweet experience to visit  Candon because we discovered yet another gastronomic adventure in the town of Candon.

I don't know what this site is called, but it was just too lovely to miss.

Due to Spanish colonization, perhaps every town in both Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur has a Roman Catholic church in the heart of their town. True enough, for Candon, in the midst of the center of their town lies their very own Church alongside their town Plaza.
