Vigan Heritage Site kinda remind me of Intramuros, only here there are more souvenir items and most of the old houses along calle crisologo are stores unlike in intramuros where most of the casas are turned into fine dining restaurants. most shops sell you usual pasalubong stuff and of course ilocano delicacies like bagnet and tinubong
cobbled stone street of calle crisologo, this street i think is vigan's most photographed street. lots of calesa's plying through the streets, the motorcyles and tricycles and modern vehicles are off limits and only ply the main roads which is good.
cafe leona, the house apparently belongs to a distant cousin of Jose Rizal and is a young poet as read from the historical marker on its door, but its now a restaurant and read good reviews but wasnt able to dine here coz it was closed when we were there (twas black saturday)
kinda spooky staircase inside grandpa's inn, a bed and breakfast hotel at the vigan city
