VIGAN: PRESERVED SPANISH INFLUENCE


In the northern part of the Philippine archipelago on the province of Ilocos Sur, there you found the heritage city of Vigan. In the city,there is a village where you can find buildings, decorations, furnitures and others that were built as early as 1800s. Over a hundred year, the city of Vigan preserved all structures without or minimal repairs so you can witness them as they were built. If you happen to visit the place it's like traveling back during the Spanish era, the time of Dr. Jose Rizal, Andres Bonifacio, and Guardia civil.

Antiques were being sold all over the village along with some "burloloys" or native accesories, old jars, key chain, locally designed t-shirt and many others. You can ride a "Calesa"to go to some other places in the city. Hundred of visitors and tourists visit the place daily.
