there's a part of vigan that has been preserved for times, where tourists may go and see the place. Visit vigan and you can recognize some places where the late Fernando Poe usually shoots his movies.

I have been to Vigan on a field trip when I was in college. We were somewhat required to join the trip, in which I am most grateful joining. Anyway, we have visited a lot of old churches, houses of different people in Philippine history, and some museums. We also had the chance to visit MalacaƱang of the north, wherein we saw the remains of the late President Marcos (or a wax model of the late president - I really don't know. Overall, although we were supposed to assess the architectural designs and patterns of these stuctures, I enjoyed the trip. I learned a lot about the history of my country. We went to the Ilocos market and I bought some bagnet - A vigan specialty of somewhat fried meat. It's hard to explain, but it's really yummy. We had a side trip to Baguio City on our way home. I want to visit Vigan again some time soon.

I've been to Vigan and I loved the sights! The people are friendly and the food is great! I loved this one church there that was made out of corals and eggs. I also went up this bell tower.. I forgot which church that was, but it was super high!
