Calle Crisologo is the second to the last stop to conclude our tour in Vigan. To check our earlier stops click here.
6:00 PM – Calle Crisologo
Calle Crisologo is only 500 meters in length and only spanning to just 5 short blocks. Houses were preserved for more than hundred years and are now converted into inns, restaurants and shops.
It is my third time here but it will be the first time I’m visiting at night. Though it is fun to be here during the day as you’ll be able to see almost everything in broad daylight, especially the shops but there’s a different feel at night.
Golden hue from the streetlamps, paved cobblestone street and the Spanish-style houses as your back drop will make your pictures even more dramatic rather romantic. You’ll feel being transported to Spanish era back again.
The street is closed to vehicles and only calesas are allowed. We rode a calesa and it’s a fun experience. It’s a first for the three of us.
It’s a lovely evening and we enjoyed walking on this cobbled street. More quiet, less crowded. We saw teenagers wearing the traditional baro’t saya and having a photoshoot. A beautiful
night sight calls the shutterbug in us. #alamna
7:00 PM – Dancing Fountain and Laser Light Show
We’re really glad Kuya Glenn brought us here to cap our tour in Vigan. We really don’t have any idea about this light show. Locals and tourists alike flocked at Plaza Salcedo and patiently waited for the show to start. At that time (since this is a late post) it’s considered as Vigan’s newest attraction.
The fountain is located in Plaza Salcedo, on its two ends – the Vigan Cathedral and Provincial Hall. On its sides, city hall and commercial building.
Sorry for the photos, not able to take good photos as there’s already a lot of people when we arrived. We’re not able to position ourselves to a place where we can get the best angle/photo of the show.
There are two shows every night, each one lasting to 30 minutes to almost an hour. And the good thing about it, it is FREE. So if you happen to be in Vigan make sure not to miss it. I guarantee you it is a beautiful show.
8:45 PM – We arrived in our homestay in Laoag.
