Calle Crisologo is a cobbled street in Vigan where the old Spanish buildings are maintained. The description conjures a vision of a trip back in time. Unfortunately, history is lost to shops selling tourist trash and an endless parade of selfies. Even some of the old buildings are being renovated to have a faux antique look. It's such a shame...

Close your eyes and listen to the calesa/horse drawn carriage cross the cobbled stone street. Imagine yourself during the Spanish times. Open your eyes and you'd think you time travelled back in the 1700s. 😊 You will only know you are in 2016 upon reaching the end of the strip and see the Island Souvenir store and Mang Inasal.

People take pictures here and there. Feeling proud to be there, for is considered as one of the 7 wonders of the world. Souvenirs can be bought anywhere . The authentic ilocos empanada and the original Tongson's Royal bibingka can be found here. Some old houses were used as hotels for the so many tourist.

My kids took tons of pictures here. Re introduced Philippine Heritage and they fell in love with the brick lined walls and paved walkways. The place is just filled with art and history.

Calle Crisologo is a heritage shopping district where one can look at centuries-old houses and enjoy shopping and dining. IT is good that the condition and facade of the houses have been maintained even as the interiors have been renovated to accommodate retail stores and restaurants, some with modern amenities as air-conditioning.
