Calle Crisologo

The Vigan Heritage Village in Vigan, Ilocos Sur was built in the 16th century. It is a typical Spanish colonial town. The materials used to make the houses were brought all the way from Europe. The materials used for the houses are pebbles, adobe, posts, and bricks. They were constructed by Chinese laborers. Therefore, the construction of the whole village is a reflection of a fusion of the Spanish, Mexican and Chinese styles which makes this place rich in history and culture.

The Vigan Heritage Village is considered a UNESCO Heritage Site. The purpose of naming the village as a Heritage Site is to be able to preserve the culture and history of the Ilocos region. To explore this beautiful tourist destination, visitors can ride the horse wagons or kalesa from the area near the Vigan Church. The place is also suitable to walk around for burning calories, that is why some people prefer walking through the village than riding the kalesa. Strolling around the village can reveal a lot about the old Ilocos culture. The famous Calle Crisologo, which is one of the most photographed places in the Philippines, is most beautiful during night time. There are a lot of shops in the area to buy souvenirs.
