Due to the rich cultural heritage of Vigan, it is deemed to be among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The Main Attraction in Vigan City, Calle Crisologo
The Calle Crisologo or otherwise known by the locals as Crisologo Street is one of the top tourist attractions in Vigan City. The well-preserved cobble-stoned streets of Vigan are lined with Asian-Spanish ancestral houses. The wooden entrance doors and interior walls, capiz windows, ancient tile roofs and horse-drawn carriages or Calesa's in the area will surely take you back in time, the only thing missing would be people dressed in Victorian clothing.
The ideal time to witness the true beauty of Calle Crisologo is during daybreak, where souvenir shops and the bustling crowd are not yet active and the soft lighting gives a dreamy effect to the street. The late evening exudes a different, and more romantic vibe to Calle Crisologo. The souvenir shops and restaurants that are located within the street area are required to have an old-Spanish facade. There are also local street food vendors in the area of Crisologo Street, like the famous empanada which is a local Filipino word for food. Restaurants in the area also serve the sought after delicacy which is the Vigan Longganisa, as sweet sausage made from pork meat.
A great time to visit the Calle Crisologo or the city itself is during the Viva Vigan Festival of Arts where the street is decorated with Abel Iloco, the handwoven textile of Ilocos. The exuberant atmosphere will definitely lift your spirits. Not only that, the festival promotes understanding of the Ilocano Culture.
