I am very much fascinated with old places and structures that has historical or cultural significance, from heritage towns, old churches, colonial houses, to lighthouses. You’ll surely be captivated by their old world charm. Upon watching Kara David’s i-Witness documentary tracing some of the bridges built during the Spanish occupation period, I instantly fell in love with these structures and felt the urge to visit them. I already visited Puente del Capricho or Tulay Pigue found in Majayjay, Laguna few years ago, which has a very interesting story. But what I considered the climax of this Spanish bridge journey is my visit to the longest and one of the oldest bridges built in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era – the Puente de Malagonlong found in Tayabas, Quezon Province.
The San Fernando Railway Station is part of the Ferrocarril de Manila-Dagupan, the first railway system in the Philippines built in 1892, spanning 195 kilometers from Tutuban in Manila to Dagupan in Pangasinan. This National Historical Institute (NHI) site is one of the five stations which can be found in the province of Pampanga. The other four stations are located in Apalit, Sto. Tomas, Angeles City and Mabalacat City.
The power of love can never be underestimated. It knows no space, endures the test of time, it breaks boundaries. This has been established many times and one of the strong proofs of this is The Ruins that is no doubt the most popular destination in Talisay City, Negros Occidental.
