Best place for me in Vigan...is the BANTAY CHURCH..
this is the oldest church at Vigan but has the best view of the place with its Bell Tower... "KAMPANA ng SIMBAHAN".. it was said to be used as means for the locals to see enemies from afar during the war.. also gives you a closer view of the bells bigger than anything you could imagine!
However the church is more known as the PANDAY Church since it was also the place where the famous movie of the late Fernando Poe Jr. was taken "PANDAY"
Houses at Vigan completes the Acient looks..having the big wooden sliding windows with Capiz accents.. HUGE heavy narra woods of their STAIRCASE that make you take extra steps each time.. plus the strong built of stone wall-houses and establishenmts..
..famous for its VIGAN "stone" tiles and antique items for sale, crisologo streets gives you the feel of acient times of MARIA CLARA and SISA.. (lets not forget Jose Rizal) wishing you have your little formal terno to go with the nostagia feel of the area..
