Agoo Sights and Landmarks Guide, Philippines

Of the many tourist destinations to explore towards the Northern part of the Philippines, Agoo encloses interesting parks and religious spots that stir your nerves up. They speak of greatness for having gone through the test of nature’s calamities and man’s tolerance just for the love of putting up a rising urban eye to become a major eco-tourism hub.

When visiting the town, no one is stopped from being captured by the neatness of the Imelda Park located in the plaza. Old acacia trees and tropical flowers are more appreciated when overlooking from the Agoo Tree House that’s perched on top. Being considered the gateway to the Northern tip, Agoo holds the Eagle of the Northern Park where a huge statue standing like a sentinel can be found before entering the historical Marcos Highway.

The park adventure for tourists doesn’t end at the highway; there is certainly more to explore. The so-called Agoo-Damortis Seashore Park in Santa Rita gives you a scenic view by the Agoo Beach. If you are touring at night, you’ll be delighted of the lights giving life to the El Nino de Pescador.

Believe it or not, your visit wouldn’t be as meaningful unless you swinging by the religious spots. Start posing for solitude at the former shrine of Our Lady of Charity that is now the Agoo Plaza dela Virgen after being destroyed by an earthquake on July 16, 1990, with Museo Iloko fronting it. Be challenged to give yourself a fat-burning quest as you climb up the Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes carved in on the mountain side at the end of Toribia Aspiras Road in Barangay San Antonio.

Most importantly, any true-blue Agoo couldn’t agree more if you’d end your religious tribute by visiting two miraculous spots: the only Basilica Minore north of Manila (acknowledged as such by Pope John Paul II in 1981) and the Apparition Site of the Immaculate Queen of Heaven and Earth on a hilly place in San Antonio. You’ll go speechless to know that both were left untouched by earthquakes in 1892 and 1990, respectively. After some serious yet meaningful stopovers, you should claim you should be in high spirits to view displays at the Museo Iloko or having a photo op at the historical marker of Agoo’s foundation that was done in Nebrebcan Site.

Whether you are touring from East or West, Agoo opens its arms wide open for you. These spots will take you to appreciate nature more and take your faith to the next level when it’s kept alive by devoted people around. There is only one way to address your curiosity on stories behind them. Count Agoo in for your next trip!
