We visited Pililla Windmills yesterday before going to our venue for our team building since this is a project of our company. And we got the chance to visit this part (substation) knowing we're working for the company who build this.

The view was amazing! 128525

Rizal version of Bangui Windmill. Windmill farm in Pilillia Rizal offers a unique destination near the metro. Great for taking pictures since turbines are scattered on different sites also there is a minibar at the viewing deck where you can get a great view from top of the mountain. Best time to go is late afternoon. No entrance fee, just a donation will do.

Compared to the linear arrangement of those in Bangui, Windmills here are scattered on different sites giving more angles for taking pictures. There's a guard on duty making sure that the place is well-secured. It's open for public so it means no entrance fee which is good. Best time to get here is late afternoon for you to witness a panoramic view.

Why go as far as Bangui if there is already a wind farm at Pililla Rizal?

Hubby was from Paete Laguna and we used to go there few years ago and for a year already I haven't been there na din. Then one time last month I told him that I want to go to Ilocos and he mentioned that there was windmill in Rizal and I don't believe in him that it was beautiful there. But I was wrong.

Last December 26 we travelled to Paete Laguna and we passed by the windmill. It's unplanned stopover actually. It's beautiful from afar pa lang what more when you get closer.

So hubby feels that I'm curious and he bring us there. Going there is for free and we thought it's not for public but we were surprised that when our car goes up there many people were there too!128561 and it became a tourist destination in Rizal, it's our own version of Bangui windmill on our area. Marikina is nearer in Rizal rather than traveling 6 or 8 hours to the north.

Hubby has a background of this as he was working before in a renewable energy and I'm glad that this project turn to reality. You can see also that the materials used has good quality. There was even a cafe near it so you can enjoy the view while eating there. The cafe has nice ambience too . They sell frappes, coffee, sandwiches etc.

Before we go home we saw some kids selling a souvenir Pillila windmill and bought it around 150 pesos.

If you haven't been to Bangui you may try this as good alternative

1. Why would you go to Bangui, Ilocos Norte (at least for the moment) when there are windmills just about a 2-hour drive from Manila? Here's the Pililla Windmills in my province, Rizal.

2. It was opened sometime this year. There are 27 wind turbines (providing 54-megawatt power) scattered throughout the area, on the hills. Some of them overlook the Laguna de Bay and the Talim Island (I surmised) in the distance.

3. The afternoon was showering by the time we arrived, so the vista point had zero visibility. But that didn't stop the tourists from coming. Later things began to clear up and we were able to see the scenic views of the lake. It was awesome already even with some of the fog remaining.

4. There is a coffee shop and restrooms.

5. Terrain past the entrance is OK, most of them are paved. The roads leading to the hills where the windmills are situated, are quite winding (but thankfully not steep), and the views are superb that some reminded me of Tagaytay.

6. Better visit the windmills in the morning.
