In the heart of Vigan

This is a place where everybody can visit as this is the center of the city. Very clean and well maintained.

Just a 2-minute walk from Plaza Burgos you'll have another Vigan experience at the Plaza Salcedo. The area is best visited early morning or late afternoon and evening to avoid the sun at its strongest and to fully enjoy the quiet surrounding of the plaza. The daily fountain display is an attraction at night (show starts at 7:30 PM). The... More

Perfect for a family destination. Lots of kids and field trips going on. There are golf carts going up and down the hill. The taho for sale by the entrance sealed the deal for me. This is a must go place so you can see the private zoo of the famous politician Chavit Singzon who shares it to the public... More

The city obviously invested a lot of money for a daily water fountain show that lasts about 30 minutes. the show is 2x a day on weekends 7:30 PM and 8:30 PM

I had a great night walking around Calle Crisologo when I remember there will be a show at the Plaza Salcedo at 7;30pm, I was mesmerized by the beautiful scenery but just a lil bit update with the choice of music I guess? But I still enjoyed watching it though :)

The plaza was nice, including the church. The parking area for Kalesas were at the side of the church. You can pay P150 - P200 and the Kalesa can take you to all major attractions in Vigan for around an hour (3-4 pax seating capacity). Very affordable. Locals were nice too.

Plaza Salcedo and the Vigan Cathedral is the dead-end of the Calle Crisologo. It seems that the cathedral is always open even evening and dawn for tourists who will pass by the heritage city. The place was well-lighted when we visited at around 3:00am, so we were able to capture the dramatic lights and attractions of the place including the... More

The person that invented this Empanadaan, an area in Plaza Salcedo with a series of stalls where you can eat the typical snack or fast food from Vigan, a traditional yummy deep fried dish, is a genius. This is the perfect way to stop the invasion of fast food chains à la McDonald.
