Calle Crisologo, Vigan

With Spanish-style houses and calesas reminiscent of the old colonial era, a walk along Calle Crisologo reveals the heart of Vigan's UNESCO-protected mestizo district. Running 500 m (1,640 ft) in length, the cobblestoned street is crowded with inns and shops set in heritage buildings, testifying to the opulence of a former class of maritime merchants. Take a horse-drawn carriage for the full experience, or simply shop for colorful woven souvenirs. The street remains well-lit at night, making for an atmospheric evening stroll.

    Maybe I expected too much? The place is cool and looks historical but, some of the houses are being renovated with modern materials. It doesn't look appealing/genuine to me anymore. Anyways, it still looks clean and safe!

    It was my second time around Calle Crisologo and it is just sad to note that through time a lot of changes has happened. it is loosing it's appeal and the nostalgic vibe.. slowly diminishing. A lot of the old structures had been renovated, some were repainted, improvements using metals on second floors are underway and clearly visible. Given a few years time, i think this once old and historical place will turn into a full blown commercial and modern street and Calle Crisologo would only be just a thing of the past. Such a sad thought for old souls like me who enjoys the simple ways of life!

    I love the kalesa fun ride. Souvenir and gift items are memorable. Native food is suitable for my taste.

    Love to go back here again. It feels like you're in an old movie. The place is very 80's love the place especially at night, the old style houses and lightings. Very relaxing.

    At night the view of Calle Crisologo is lively, same with the dancing fountain on a plaza...many people are wanted to go back at that place because of lively ambiance at night.

Where to stay in Vigan

With the main places to see in Vigan located on Crisologo Street, you'll find the primary accommodations in town close by. The pedestrianized street houses few accommodations itself, but the connecting roads offer some luxury and mid-range hotels set in atmospheric colonial-era buildings. The further you get from the cobbles of Crisologo, the more modern the accommodations, with newly built hotels in both the north and south of town, and some particularly budget-friendly options located along Liberation Boulevard as it crosses the river to the east.
