Visiting one of Philippines famous Abra Don Mariano Marcos Bridge has been one of your dreams for a very long time

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. 


Spanning over the mighty Abra River, the DON MARIANO MARCOS BRIDGE is located along the Abra Kalinga National Road, between the towns of Dolores and Tayum. You will pass through it on your way to Tineg. It is the third longest bridge in the country, with a total length of 886.812 linear meters.


You can sing the entire national anthem of the Philippines while passing by here running at a speed of 60 kph. You can also enjoy a beautiful sunset view at the bridge.
