Plaza Burgos

Plaza BurgosPhoto by City Government of Vigan

Plaza Burgos is located beside the St. Paul Cathedral's Bell Tower in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. It was built in honor of Father Jose P. Burgos, one of the three Filipino priests who were executed in 1872 by the Spanish authorities on charges of subversion relating to a mutiny in Cavite province against the Spanish colonial forces. The two other priests were Mariano Gomez and Jacinto Zamora. They were collectively known as GOMBURZA, a portmanteau of their surnames. 

Inside the plaza stands a monument with the inscriptions of Burgos and statements about his life. You will also find a statue of the priest a few meters away. Along with these monuments, the plaza is also home to a mini-park and playground where the locals and visitors can relax. 

Best time to visit

It is best to visit the park in the dry season, which usually starts in the latter weeks of December and lasts until the end of May. It is also recommended to drop by in the afternoon, when the sun isn't too high and the weather is generally cooler.
