The last leg of our north Luzon trip included a stop in Vigan. Vigan is a beautiful town. Very clean. It is also one town where there are a lot of heritage houses. Calle Crisologo - is the main attraction because it remains to be a cobblestone road. However - outside of Calle Crisologo - there are still numerous Spanish-occupation era houses.
The old houses remind me of my home in Sta. Ana, Manila. Sta. Ana also has a lot of heritage houses. In fact among all the districts of Manila, Sta. Ana has the most number of houses that survived World War II.
When we visited Vigan --- it was so crowded. It was during the New Year break of 2014/2015. It was impossible to get a picture of Calle Crisologo without a person ( I could have - maybe if I went there really early in the morning ). So instead of taking numerous pictures of the houses - I just did the next best thing. I did people watching.
We stayed in Casa Rica. It's one of the bed and breakfasts in Vigan. The owner is really nice. They don't have parking - but the owner said it's safe to park on the streets. Vigan is one of those towns in the Philippines with virtually no crime.
A visit to Vigan is not complete without buying Vigan longganiza and Bagnet. We just asked the staff of Casa Rica to buy for us. While we're in Vigan - we also tried Cafe Uno - located at Grandpa's Inn. I love their Bagnet Quesadilla and their Pancit Loglog.
After this quick visit to Vigan - we headed home to Baguio. I have one more post on our great Luzon journey after this. It's about my home in Baguio. Watch out for that last post
