Place is very quiet and there is nothing really special about the place. Saving grace would be the Carmellite Convent. Make sure to buy something in th shop to help the sisters.

The place is a bit off the main road so we needed to hire a tricycle to get there. The ruins of the old church is interesting. The place is quiet and a bit spooky. It's good for half an hour visit

Part of our La Union road trip was side trip to Pindangan Ruins. It's not along the main road. It was actually spooky as there's not much people around so we did not bother to have our pictures taken. There isn't much to see.
