Vigan Arce Mansion is home to many captivating travel destinations

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.

Guests sport historic attire at this restored colonial home (turned museum) decorated with period furnishings. The museum serves dinner to guests while dressed up. You get to live in a bygone era while at ARCE MANSION. Aside from that, you can expect to see really old wood floors, antique furniture, and paintings. The mansion is perfect for the colonial-era inspired photo shoot. 

Vigan’s heritage never ceases to amaze local and foreign tourists. It’s also Philippines’ pride and a well-preserved location for people who wish to know true history and experience what it’s like to live in the Spanish era even for just a few minutes.
