Sinking Bell Tower, Laoag City, Ilocos Norte, Luzon, Philippines

It is believed that the historic tower is sinking at a rate of an inch a year, though no one is completely sure why.

The mysterious bell tower of Laoag City continues to capture the curiosities of people visiting Ilocos Norte, a northern province of the Philippines. Its tale traces a long story of occupation, struggle, and survival—much like the tale of the country’s rise and wane under Imperial Spain.
