Our journey to the north found its first stop at Cape Bojeador in Burgos, Ilocos Norte. Sitting on top of Vigia de Nagparitan hill, it is considered to be the highest positioned lighthouse in the Philippines, also the most visited. Its light marks the northwestern corner of the island of Luzon, guiding ships traveling from South China Sea.

The 15 towering windmills provide 40% of the power requirements of Ilocos Norte and serve as an attempt to practice renewable energy sources to help reduce the greenhouse gases that cause global warming.
