Inspirock Rating:
2.8/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web
Privately owned by the former Filipino politician Chavit Singson, Baluarte houses a small zoo, butterfly farm, chapel, and shooting range. Feed monkeys, camels, deer, and peacocks in the open enclosure, then head to the big cat enclosures to catch a glimpse of majestic lions and Bengal tigers. You don't have to pay for entrance, with all profits from the animal feed purchased going to support the zoo. Wander through the well-kept grounds of gardens and pools, stopping at the quaint pink chapel to escape the heat. Singson’s own residence sits within the estate, looking out toward the city of Vigan. You can make use of picnic areas and a canteen serving light refreshments within the estate. To visit Baluarte on your trip to Vigan, use our Vigan holiday planner.
