Best Holiday Destinations - Abra San Lorenzo Shrine Where You Need To Visit Today

Abra (Ilokano: Probinsia ti Abra; Tagalog: Lalawigan ng Abra) is a landlocked province of the Philippines in the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon. Its capital is Bangued, and is bordered by Ilocos Norte on the northwest, Apayao on the northeast, Kalinga on the mid-east, Mountain Province on the southeast, and Ilocos Sur on the southwest.

Abra for a long time had been a blank spot on the Philippine tourism map. It is often skipped due to news of killings and partly because of its location in North Luzon. It is sandwiched between two very popular tourist destinations - Ilocos in the west and the Cordilleras in the east. But now Abra is becoming one of the best tourist destinations with huge arrays to choose from, old churches, long bridges, mountain ranges, magnificent waterfalls, food and a lot more. 

The SAN LORENZO RUIZ SHRINE in Abra was built during Spanish Era. There are two bell towers and detailed brick work on its facade. The church stands all alone by the towns cemetery in an area known as Camposanto. The red brick building is too grand to have been built as the cemetery’s chapel. 

The SAN LORENZO RUIZ SHRINE is just one of the best holiday destinations you need to visit in Abra.
