Patapat Viaduct is an elevated concrete highway constructed along winding/rocky headlands near
the northernmost roadway section in Ilocos Norte (could be considered second northernmost
roadway section in Luzon)  This viaduct was constructed to solve the problem
of landslides in the area which have caused so many vehicular accidents in the past.
 Footed on the rocky seashore just several meters from the mountain side it
gives motorists a spectacular view of Pasaleng Bay.
How to get there
The Patapat viaduct is about 16+ kilometers from
Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte.
 From Pagudpud, simply head northeast towards Cagayan.  This will
take you through winding mountain roads that have lush vegetation on both sides
and occasional views of the sea until you reach the patapat viaduct.
