    This pic is the detachment area. It leads you to the municipal towm proper and at the opposite end leads you towards (away) other barios away from town.

  • Fagaragan   North Carolina -- 2009-02-25

    I grew up in Barrio #17 of Badoc and had passed by the pictured intersection a hundred times in my youth. As I remember, the Church (Catholic?) and the Municipal Building are a stone's throw away. The public market is also not too far away. As a kid, we go to town to sell fruits and vegetables and buy fresh fish and meat. I remember the artesian well. Is it still there? Oh, how I long to see the place again. I wonder if the ipon, ar-arusip, and kilawen a kalding, etc. are still as delicious as I remember. Please e-mail me if only to tell me how nice it is to be home again.

    Gamatero and Fagaragang I believe that Family knows its other. Ladera should be mix in this last names. They are all related to each other. By the way the, you mention all the food; you don't what you missing. I've spend 06-07 X-mas at Badoc. Love it.

  •   US -- 2009-06-01

    If this picture was taken by the detachment, there is no way it is a stone's throw away from the church and the municipal building.
    The detachment is lcated diay daya and the church is at the plaza.

  • manny   guam -- 2009-08-01

    Hey RC,maybe you are related to enriqueta g. campos gamponia.I'm also related to her because my mom's maiden name is also gamatero.Maybe we can all go and have a vacation in Badoc sometime at the same time, and see if we belong to the same family tree.That would be awesome!

  • manny   guam -- 2009-08-01

    This is the intersection at the old Phil. Constabulary detachment.
    This is not downtown Badoc as described in the picture,this is just an intersection along the national highway going up north to Laoag City.

  • james clave   menteng, jakarta, indonesia -- 2013-07-24

    Tama po, kung hindi kayo lumaki sa Badoc, hindi niyo alam kung anong lugar ito. INTERSECTION ITO NG KALSADA SA MAY DETACHMENT NG PHIL CONSTABULARY (PC), those riding on their motorbikes are going towards the direction of the town proper, near the Gorospe Hospital. It intersects with the national highway (Maharlika Highway) linking Manila and Laoag City, the capital city of Ilocos Norte in the north. Opposite of the road going to the town proper is a barangay road going to Brgy. Paltit.
