It lies on the eastern portion of Ilocos Norte. It has land area of 144.93 square kilometers, with a population of 19,659 in 1995.
The floods of 1885 and 1904 brought untold disasters to the town. To speed up economic recovery, Solsona was emerged with Dingras. Thus, its government was administered by the latter. In 1990, it became an independent town.
