Come along this tour that will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage City of Vigan. If you are staying in Laoag for its beautiful sand dunes and other natural wonders, but want to see the historic side of Ilocos, this trip is perfect for you.

After being picked up from your hotel in Laoag, you will head straight to the most famous stop in Vigan: Calle Crisologo. It is best known for the Spanish-era houses that line the street. Your guide will conduct a walking tour along the street's four blocks to discuss its rich history and heritage. Afterwards, you will be free to walk along the cobblestone streets at your own pace.

Immerse yourself fully in the experience by buying local products and trying out authentic Ilocano dishes. Grab a bite of the famous Vigan empanada, a pastry stuffed with pork or beef. You’ll also see kalesas (horse-drawn carriage) being used as a mode of transportation.

From Calle Crisologo, you will go to Plaza Burgos next. This public space has a lot of food kiosks, making it the perfect place to drink some refreshments to douse the heat. Here, you will find a statue of Father Burgos, one of the martyred priests during the Spanish Colonial Period.

Head next to Syquia Mansion, resident of former Philippine president Elpidio Quirino. This ancestral house contains paintings of his family, memorabilia, and antique furniture. One of the most recognizable artworks inside is a replica of the Spoliarium by Juan Luna.

Afterwards, check out Baluarte Zoo, where you will see some animals endemic to the Philippines. Families will definitely enjoy this stopover, as children can pet the animals and learn about them.

Explore the rich culture and heritage of Vigan and see what makes it a UNESCO World Heritage site. Check availability by choosing a date above.
