Don Mariano Marcos Bridge
Don Mariano Marcos Bridge is the third longest bridge in the Philippines, spanning 886 meters across the Abra River. It connects the towns of Tayum and Lagangilang in the province of Abra. It offers a scenic view of the river and the mountains. It was named after the father of former President Ferdinand Marcos, who was born in Abra.
The bridge was built in 1978 by the Philippine government under the administration of President Marcos. The bridge was part of the Abra-Ilocos Sur Road Project, which aimed to improve the transportation and communication in the region. The bridge was designed by Engineer Benjamin Bautista, who also designed the San Juanico Bridge, the longest bridge in the country.
The bridge is also a tourist attraction, as it offers a stunning view of nature and a relaxing atmosphere. The bridge is also a symbol of hope and change for the people of Abra, who have suffered from violence and conflict for decades. The bridge is a testament to the faith and generosity of Don Mariano Marcos, who dedicated his life to serving his people and promoting peace and harmony in Abra.
