Stone quarrying by local folks at the beach where the once formidable Spanish baluarte is barely standing had gone unnoticed for some time by the local government. Lately partial efforts to save the ruins have been put in place in the form cement support. Also, the last information I got from the tricycle driver who took me to the seaside bastion was good news in that rock peddling at the area was being kept under control.
Getting There: From San Fernando, I took a jeepney ride to the sleepy town of Luna which cost me P50. The trip took 30 to 45 minutes to reach the town plaza where the Shrine of Our Lady of Namacpacan awaited me.
Useful Tip: You can approach a tricycle driver at the plaza to take you to the baluarte for a few minutes and afterwards drop you off at the nearest highway boarding point for buses going back to Manila which I did.
