Calle Crisologo

Vigan City, Ilocos Sur

Walk back in time and feel the old-world charm of Vigan, one of the very few remaining Hispanic towns in the Philippines and a UNESCO World Heritage.

Established in the 16th century as Villa Fernandina, Vigan is endowed with its timeless and well preserved beauty and the heart of it is Calle Crisologo, the city’s show window.

Calle Crisologo is a short (approximately 500 meters long) cobblestone thoroughfare filled with old Spanish-style houses and shops that evoke a bygone era. The street is bustling with life and movements at daylight but at nightfall, the movements turns into a classic stillness reminiscent of those lamp-lit streets of ancient Europe.

Definitely a must visit when in Vigan!

  1. Vigan is a must visit once I go back to the country for a visit, after so many years of staying in Spain. It would be thrilling to see all those authentic hispanic houses and cobbled streets, Vigan must come like a mini Spanish pueblo.
