Whether this bell tower is really sinking or not, we leave it up to you. The fact remains that this brick-made monument is one of the prominent landmarks in Laoag City. It is strangely located far from the church of which it is the belfry. Well, it is not the only detached bell tower in the Philippines. Take the case of the bell tower of the Jaro Cathedral in Iloilo. At any rate, this "sinking" monument provides a good background for any pictorial. You'll be impressed by its massive, multi-tiered structure that has survived earthquakes and other adverse events since the early 17th century. Thumbs up!

This landmark has a lot of potential but i was disappointed that it was not well maintained by the city. I mean, you can see vendors around the area and it was such an eyesore. it's totally different from the Google photos.

Looks nice from afar though.

We were told by our local guide at the time that the tower was really sinking, but very slowly. The tower looks very well kept for its age, despite being around an urbanized community. It has no significant signs of deliberate damage nor vandalism even though the tower is unguarded and unwalled. The attraction is pretty minor as compared to other attractions of the region, but make sure you drop by for a selfie.

The sinking tower is believed to be decreasing in height. The door can allow even a horse carriage before but now, one must bow their heads in order to fit in the place

A nice old structure to see by day or night when it is lit up. Either drive around it or walk around it. Didn't see anywhere to enter the tower.

The view from the top is gorgeous.
It is very difficult to climb as there are NO handrails; so,
people with equilibrium challenges need to hold on to single
bricks jutting out into the staircase.

included this historical spot in our itinerary as it is just near William's Cathedral and just walking distance to the Main Avenue. Need a parking space for private cars.

I suggest they setup a mini garden around it, with a guide to where best to post. Right now they have a bazaar and food stalls next to it.

I was curious with what the sinking bell tower looked like but it just looked like a regular bell tower. It was still standing nicely and it was huge and still worth to go to.
