Location: Barangay Victoria, Luna, La Union, Philippines

The town of Luna, La Union (formerly called Namacpacan and now named after one of the town’s famous sons, Gen. Antonio Luna and Juan Luna) is the home of one of the historical landmarks that denote La Union’s rich history.

The Luna Watchtower was built during the pre-Spanish times as a lookout point for impending attack by pirates or danger from the sea. Because of its massiveness and height, guards were able to warn the residents of Luna and prepare the peace officers to defend the properties and lives of their constituents. Like a guardian looking over its subjects, this ancient structure had served its purpose very well for countless times in the past.
