There are lights at night which gives effects to the sign and monument. Colors are changing. Try capturing all colors.

I didn't notice this monument immediately until I saw some words in the base of the monument. Then I realized that this is already the Tobacco Monopoly Monument. We went here in nightime, a lot of tourists were also in the area taking photos.

This monument is in Aurora Park near the Laoag CBD (central business district.) I took a photo with a calesa in the foreground to make it that little bit more 'historical.'

It's just some cement and a few bricks which could have been made and restored much much better. It's right in the middle of the city and next to the river , the garden square is ok with a small souvenir shop selling local handicrafts...More

This monument is located in a roundabout across the Provincial Capitol. To go here, you need to cross the street where fast vehicles pass, so be very careful. This monument serves as a homage to the Ilocano tobacco farmers. There is also a mini park...More

We waited until the cars circling the rotunda sped by and only a slower-moving calesa (horse-drawn carriage) was within the frame of the photo. I loved how the photo seemed like it transported me a few hundred years back in time!

It is a monument placed in the Aurora Park. It can be seen when you arrive or depart from the city crossing the bridge. It is a remembrance to how Ilocanos fought for their livelihood.
