Among many places worth visiting are Vigan Crisologo Museum

Vigan (Ilocano: Siudad ti Vigan; Tagalog: Lungsod ng Vigan) is the capital of the province of Ilocos Sur, Philippines. Located on the western coast of the large island of Luzon, facing the South China Sea, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is one of the few towns left in the Philippines whose old structures have mostly remained intact, and it is well known for its sett pavements and a unique architecture of the Philippine colonial era which fuses Native Philippine and Oriental building designs and construction, with colonial Spanish architecture that is still abundant in the area, mainly the Bahay na Bato houses and an Earthquake Baroque church. 

The entire city of Vigan was later inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage City after being declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a member of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC). 

In May 2015, Vigan City was officially recognized as one of the New7Wonders Cities, putting Vigan on the world map as a top tourist spot that should be in any traveler’s bucket list.

The locals are more than happy to show you around top Vigan tourist spots and other places of interest, including a number of parks and museums, a beach facing the West Philippine Sea, and a safari-like zoo, to mention just a few of its must-see attractions.

CRISOLOGO MUSEUM is one of the most popular tourist spots in Vigan City, consisting of the preserved ancestral home of the late Congressman Floro S. Crisologo, who was assassinated while attending church services at St. Paul’s Cathedral. Since then, his wife turned their house into a museum that’s open and free for public viewing, including the blood-stained that the late congressman was wearing during that fateful day. 

Visitors can see clothes, antiques, etc. which belonged to the late solon. However, they are not allowed to touch the memorabilia but picture taking is allowed, of course. CRISOLOGO MUSEUM is a nice place to visit with interesting artifacts.
