Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Patapat Viaduct

  • Why Patapat bridge is famous?
    Patapat Viaduct became a tourist attraction because it offers a majestic view of Pasaleng Bay. On a very clear day, the islands of Fuga and Calayan are visible to the naked eye. During the rainy days it shows its splendor with its water dropping rhythmically to a precipice on the rocky shore of the sea below.

  • Who built Patapat Viaduct?
    The viaduct was constructed by Hanil Development Co. Ltd. under the overall management of DPWH-PMO-PJHK and was completed and opened to traffic in October 1986. It rises along the town's coastal mountains, which is the starting point of the Cordillera Mountain Range that snakes through Northern Luzon.

  • Why is it called a viaduct?
    The term viaduct is derived from the Latin via meaning "road", and ducere meaning "to lead". It is a 19th-century derivation from an analogy with ancient Roman aqueducts. Like the Roman aqueducts, many early viaducts comprised a series of arches of roughly equal length.
