This house is very well preserved and there are many items that reflect the history and beauty of a bygone age and time. Look around and imagine what life must have been like in those days.

This place made me feel how indios like me was treated by their masters at spanish time. This place still has its Gilid areas, which is where their servants before are allowed to use. That is why there is such people called alpine sagigilid. History review with an annoying facts.

Since we are only staying 3 blocks away from the church and museum we planned to go here after church. Surprise!! It is closed. They should make this available as well during... More

Its interesting to look around at how they used to live. Small entrance fee upon arrival. We walked around ourselves and found it inspiring.

We were in a hurry that time so we crammed almost all the attractions into a two hour tricycle package (LOL). Our first stop was the Syquia mansion and with our visit we learned a lot. Good place to start a tour.

This is in central Vigan and the entrance fee is next to nothing. We had time to walk around at our own pace and then a really informative guide found us and took us around again explaining each room and then history of the place. We really enjoyed our visit and then called at Irene's Empanadas which is on the... More

In the ground floor it was explained they used to house all the workers for the house along with animals such as poultry pigs etc. moving to the second floor you will see all the original furniture including...

After around 10-15 minutes an old guy came out and told us that they were closed because of a private event yesterday and unfortunately they... More

It was our first time in Vigan we were toured around by Tricycle drivers who contracted us to pay them Php130 per hour. Our group is composed of 13 people so we didn't mind the fee as we see it as a win-win solution. Anyways, the caretaker welcomed us with much enthusiasm and vigor he told us what are the... More

Definitely worth a visit, it gives you an impression how a very well-to-do family in Vigan lived a good hundred years ago. A guide is available upon request, I walked leisurely through the rooms and halls on my own though. A little more info would have been appreciated but can presumably be found on the Internet.
