BRIEF HISTORY

        Long before the coming of the Spaniards, there already existed an extensive region
(consisting the present provinces of Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, Abra and La Union) which was
renowed for its gold mines. Merchants from Japan and China would often visit the area to trade
gold with beads, ceramics and silk. The inhabitants of the region, believed to be of Malay origin,
called their place “ samtoy”, and from “sao mi toy”, which literally meant “our language”.

        In 1571, when the Spanish conquistadors had established the Spanish City of Manila,
they began looking for new centers of administration to conquer. Legaspi’s grandson, Juan De
Salcedo, volunteered to lead one of these expeditions. Togother with 8 armed boats and 45 men,
the 22 year old voyager headed towards the north.

        On June 13, 1572, Salcedo And His men landed in Vigan and then proceeded towards
Laoag, Currimao and Badoc. As they sailednalong the coast, they were surprised to see
numerous sheltered coves (“looc”) where the locals lived in harmony. Consequently, they named
the region “Ylocos’ and its people “Ylocanos”.

       As the Christianization of the region grew, so did the landscape of the area. Vast tracks of
land were utilized for churches and bell towers in line with Spanish mission of “bajo las
campanas”. In the town plaza, it was not uncommon to see garrisons under the church bells. The
colonization process was slowly being carried out.

        The Spanish colonization of the region, however, was never completely successful.
Owing to the abusive practices of many Ilocanos revolted against their colnizers. Noteworthy of
these were the Dingras uprising (1589) and Pedro Almasan revolt ( San Nicolas,1660).In 1762,
Diego Silang led a series of battles aimed at freeing the Ilocanos from the Spanish yoke. When
he died from an assassin’s bullet his widow Gabriela continued the cause. Unfortunately , she too
was captured and hanged. In 1807, the sugarcane (“ basi”) brewers of Piddig rose up in arms to
protest the government’s monopoly of the wine industry. I 1898, the church excommunicated
Gregorio Aglipay for refusing to cut off ties with the revolutionary forces of Gen. Emilio
Aguinaldo. Unperturbed, he established the “Iglesia Filipina Independence”. Aglipay’s
movement and the nationalist sentiment it espoused helped restore the self-respect of many
Filipinos.

       In an effort to gain more political control as a result of the increasing population of the
region, A Royal Decree was signed on February 2, 1818 splitting Ilocos into two provinces
Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur. Soon thereafter, the provinces of La Union and Abra likewise
became independent.

SHOPPING

          The Ilocano culture is alive and well in Ilocos Norte.
         Because local artisans still practice their art, visitors are provided the rare chance of
witnessing the authentic works of our craftsmen. Among the best buys are basketry (Pinili,
Badoc), bricks (Paoay), mushrooms (Pinili), pottery & metal works (San Nicolas), rattan
(Adams, Marcos, Nueva Era & Pagudpud), tin smithing (Badoc) and weaving material (Laoag,
Paoay & Sarrat). Ilocos Norte is proud of its garlic (Bacarra, Badoc, Bangui, Burgos & Paoay),
sukang iloko (native vinegar) and tobacco (Badoc, Batac, Bingras, Marcos & Paoay). Among its
native delicacies are bagnet (chicharon), biscocho (crackers), corniks (corn kernels), empanada
(filled pastry), linga (sesame seed), longaniza (sausage) and tupig (sticky rice).

       The best bargains can be found from the market vendors, especially during their market
days. Come early, though, because the vendors usually go home before lunch time.
