About 4 blocks of houses from the Spanish times, with a lot of business selling souvenirs, the magic happens at night when is more comfortable to walk around and enjoy dinner in one of the tables in the middle of the street, very romantic and affordable plus delicious food

This is just like visiting Intramuros in Manila. You see all the old Spanish era buildings. Nothing really spectacular. I guess people would go here if they want to see how houses in the Spanish era were.

The pictures in the net does not reflect the real state of the place. Though i liked the architecture, it was obviously not restored properly. Considering it is one of our heritage site, there was nothing heritage about it. Instead it is not commercialized. Though there are bargains to be found, the place reeks of commercialism. Still it was nice... More

This is a short street with many of the old houses that are preserved. Hopefully they keep on adding other streets in Vigan to do the same

Calle Crisologo, in its purest form, is a real throwback to the days of yore. Unpaved streets with horses clip-clopping as they carry their passenger laden calesas over the cobblestones; antique houses converted to storefronts with hand-painted signages in fancy calligraphy; wooden swing sets and colorful wares you can feast your eyes on at every corner. Grab some Vigan empanadas... More

A very good place to visit..i think when you come to Ilocos it is not perfect if you will not visit this place..an old place yet relaxing...it is like you are visiting other countries and good to visit @ 5:00pm to get a scenic view in capturing the place

Love the way the Ilocos Sur government has maintained this area, used to work here 20 years ago, and the improvements that they have made is just wow... had fun with my kids, telling them that this are great examples of haunted houses that they see on TV! Had them spooked, especially that we were there at night.... The only... More

Calle Crisologo has changed since I last went there. It was the same historical street where souvenir shops of ilocos can be found. But what changed from my Calle Crisologo trip from years (I think 7 years) ago are the presence of establishments such as restaurants, fast foods and other eateries on the strip. It kinda makes the heritage site... More

Been wanting to go for so long and finally got the chance. It was a lovely experience. I love the old houses and this was a town full of it. The driver cum tour guide told me a nice love story of why this town was not ravaged to the ground by the Japs like they did the rest of... More
