Walking through the Capitol

Have you enjoy the sight in Calle Crisologo?  As we all know that Vigan is one of the World Heritage Site, a town left that still remains intact and preserves history. The structures in Vigan serves you history, so even the fastfoods and other buildings look like the old structures way back in Spanish era. After the finish line of Mestizo street, Capitol of Vigan welcomes you! This will lead you to the heart of Ilocos Sur where the Plaza Salcedo and St. Paul Metropolitan Cathedral are located.

Just in case you're lost and don't know where to go, a huge map will help you. Informations about hotels, restaurants, stations are printed out on that map.

It's been a long time since we played in playgrounds. Hahaha! They really feel like a kid again.

Awesome design of their Mcdonalds beside the St. Paul's Cathedral.


The first cathedral in Vigan built in 1574 by Juan de Salcedo. Designed in a baroque-style church with its bell tower stands separately in Plaza Burgos.

The park located in front of the cathedral is named Plaza Salcedo. It was named in honor to the Spanish conqueror who discover Vigan and erected a monument for him. They add some entertainment in this Plaza way back 4 years ago I think. Every night they have a dancing fountain show which enjoyed by the tourists and citizens.

After the walk in Plaza Salcedo we head back to the hotel (Hotel Linda Suites) to take a rest. Sorry to inform you guys that I didn't watch the fountain. But I do have an article about that last 2-3 years ago. 

I meet my friend Sayie in Vigan! Finally I see him personally.

We call it a night! Goodbye Vigan, we'll be heading tomorrow morning in the northern part of Ilocos and visit some rock formations.
