It is a regular 300sqm-ish viewing deck overlooking the Abra River. Three things that caught my attention: (1) the statue of a couple, (2) the tall transmission tower, and (3) the spacious area that was probably built for photo-hungry tourists [like us]! XD
I'm sure anyone who'll go farther into the deck will first notice the statue of a man giving a woman a back hug, both facing the river. So when you enter the deck area, you will first see their backs. At a closer look, I noticed that both are sporting 1700s Pinoy fashion -- probably representing the era when Diego and Gabriela Silang fought for the freedom of the Ilocanos. Unfortunately, I couldn't identify the couple because I didn't see anything under the statue, something like a description to explain why the statue has been built, why it was put in the viewing deck and most importantly, who these people are supposed to be. What's more unfortunate is the fact that a few vandals decided to ruin the statue by spray-painting what I consider ugly doodles all over it :((
