As part of Spain’s masterplan to illuminate the Philippine coastlines, this 65 feet tall beacon was erected and lit for the first time on March 30, 1982. Located in Burgos, Ilocos Norte, the lighthouse, a cultural heritage treasure, stands on top of Vigia de Nagparitan Hill overlooking Cape Bojeador. It marks the northwesternmost point of mainland Luzon, and used to signal the passing Galleons that they have entered the Philippine Territory.
