Wandering Vigan -- The Heritage Village

It looks like we’re in a historical period movie while we posed for pictures in a cobblestone street where there are century- old Spanish houses as part of the background.
We we’re like reliving those Crisostomo Ibarra & Maria Clara eras with Sisa, Basilio & Crispin.

The sun rose so proud that day while the sky is blue. It exposed the glory of the Heritage Village – rustic, classy and nostalgic. The only modern touch of this old-looking street are the souvenir shops of colorful stuffs from key chains to wooden crafts.

Adding to the ancient-feeling scenery is the kalesa, a famous mode of transportation in this village. We were given option to ride the kalesa for an hour for PhP300 but we opted to take our feet to unravel and discover the beauty of the site.
