Exploring San Fernando, La Union

Even though we hopped on a bus that will pass by Urbiztondo, we decided to get off at San Fernando since it was on the top on our “to-go” list. We arrived at around 5:00 AM. We had breakfast at Jollibee and went to hear mass at the Cathedral. Then, we started to go see the places we planned to visit. We originally wanted to see the Poro Lighthouse but we decided not to go anymore. I read reviews online and figured it was not worth the long ride after all.

Here are the places we visited in San Fernando, La Union:

La Union Capitol


San Fernando Town Plaza


St. William the Hermit Cathedral


Filipino-Chinese Friendship Pagoda




Ma-Cho Temple


Pindangan Ruins






Christ the Redeemer Statue


I apologize if you were expecting even a tiny bit of description for each place. I realized I will end up researching and will eventually tend to copy everything from Wikipedia anyway. So I decided to just put up the photos instead. Anyway, if you are heading to San Juan, La Union and wanted to see and experience more than just the beach and the waves, I suggest you take a side trip to San Fernando. It’s just 15 minutes away from Urbiztondo. 🙂
