Vigan, Ilocos Sur: A Stroll and Kalesa Tour at Heritage Village

We started off with our Vigan day tour on probably the most famous of all streets in Vigan, the Calle Crisologo at Heritage Village. A sojourn to the Ilocandia is incomplete without walking down the cobblestone streets and rows of ancestral houses in Vigan City, aptly called "Heritage Village." Built in varying Spanish-Mexican-Chinese architectural styles, thick brick walls, tile roofs and red clay, the mansions stand side by side to each other as if frozen in time.

Shops in Calle Crisologo is overflowing with everything from bagnet to bags and  handicrafts to intricately carved woodwork and antiques.
