Calle Crisologo is the reason why vigan is part of the wonder cities. With all the antique homes and cobble stones preserve. We even got to ride a calesa something that you can no longer find here in our cities. So happy that the government is doing everything to preserve the site

I pretty much loved everything! Best to go around 11 pm when there's not a lot of people.. the street is so quiet and it just brings you back to the past.

We recently spent three days roaming through Vigan, a Unesco Heritage town in North West Luzon, absorbing its history, its food and its inimitable atmosphere. It was the week before Halloween, and Vigan was hosting the Twilight Festival or Raniag. The streets were humming with large family groups - locals and visitors, mostly Filipinos – eating, chatting, taking selfies, smiling,... More

For photoholics, calle crisologo in vigan is best visited at dawn (around 5 a.m.). The shops are closed and it is very peaceful to walk around. Pictures taken early in the morning are postcard-perfect.

The last time I visited Vigan was around 15 years ago so I decided to visit it again this year. Calle Crisologo still has retained most of its charm... I really love the "feel" of the place... the old cobbled road, the Hispanic structures, the horse-driven carriages (kalesa)... What I was very disappointed at was that the government allowed modern... More

Back in college, my friend Rio and I were bold enough to join a trip to Ilocos Norte/Sur for less than 400 including accommodation & dinner. It was a trip by nuns from our dorm and we just volunteered to tag along after dramatic conversations with our family mostly about independence and letting us enjoy life for a bit.lol To... More

we arrived 0500H. so we did not expect much. but when we came back 1000H, the streets were so busy, flooded with tourists and local vendors. a good place to stroll and to enjoy the "marks" of the past .

It's like going back 500 years ago. Had a great time here. Try not to be in a rush. Feel the breeze the imagine you are indeed there several centuries ago. Feel the old road and watch each building/houses therein. Best to experience in the evening and remember to eat "empanada". LoveKoIlocos dot wordpress dot com

I liked the old brick roads and the heritage houses. Not all of the heritage/old Spanish houses were renovated but still I was able to get the feeling of living in an old century.

it is just so amazing to look back and see the cultural history of your country. People from this province are so great, to preserve and let the new generations see a wonderful glimpse of the Filipino Culture. We rode the Kalesa and tour around the City... Highly recommended! an awesome place, awesome people! Definitely worth to come back!
