Banggar is almost at the end part of La Union (2 or 3 more towns and you’re already in Ilocos). This place is very enchanting because of the magic of weaving. Old ladies line up and weave blankets the old way.

    I was hoping to see a pic of the Seven Hills. It kinda caught my interest. I am imagining some kind of similarity with Bohol’s Chocolate Hills only there are seven of them in La Union. :)

  14. I’m not a historian, but I love to delve into the history of place, its origin and how does it get her name, among others. I heard a lot of La Union, but I’m not familiar with the museums and historical places there. It takes a good time to visit La Union in some other days.

    Old churches, remains of historical structures, towers and marvelous nature – eto yung mga bagay na gustong-gusto kung kinukunan ng pictures.

    To me if a place has any of those, then it’s worth a visit.

    Thanks for sharing.
