However,the original beauty of the street is now gone. The street is now occupied by restaurants/bars,sovenirs shops...More

A well-known historical location with preserved architectural structures. Considered as a “must see” by the visitors but its short distance left us unsatisfied. Similar view with Pila, Laguna and Intramuros scenery.

The best time to visit Calle Crisologo is... 3AM You own all the streets for photography. But I observe, The local government should keep the streets of this heritage site walkable by regularly conducting pest control. There are too many cockroach in the streets.

Calle Crisologo will take you to the old times. The houses and calle is old style. Most of the shop around the area were souvenir shops and eatery. I recommend to eat empanada here.

Calle Crisologo gives you a good overview of the historic buidings that are around Vigan. It's here where you can get the horse drawn guides that will take you to the major attractions in Vigan.

Reliving the past walking through the ancient times. Calle Crisologo is good picturisque subject area for your photowalk because of the spanish architectural designs that the locals were able to preserved. There were also lots of souvenir shops around and restaurants to enjoy ilocano cuisines....More

Vigan Trip Report - Feb. 28 to March 4, 2014 (6 Replies)
Just left Vigan by bus to Baguio just yesterday, prior to that I was in Laoag. I'm supposed to stay only a night in Vigan but ended up staying 4, I just love the place. I got used to and love staying at small towns in other countries, I 'm not into big cities, people are nicer in small places, and Vigan is one of those. It's a city yes, but somehow it gave me this small-town feel. Every morning I'll go to McDonalds at the town plaza to buy some brewed coffee along with some breakfast - for...More

hi there. Vigan is just a small town and you can go around Vigan in 3hrs, if you leave Laoag at 2pm you might probably reach Vigan between 1 1/2 to 2hours so that would be around 4pm. you may also opt to have a stop at Cabugao Beach on your way to Vigan, nice place to relax and chill out. Good stop over if you hae kids, beach is good. aftrenoon tour in Vigan is good, make sure to stop by the Emapanadahan before it gets dark, around 5:30pm cause they run out of empanadas quickly...More
