What would one do in Vigan on a rainy evening if one has only a few minutes to spare? I suggest you head straight to Calle Crisologo and take your own postcard shots of the place.
We decided to take a brief stopover at Vigan on our way back to Manila from a weekend of shooting places in Ilocos Norte (Maira-ira, Bangui, Kapurpurawan). The sidetrip was short, just enough to have a quick dinner in a carienderia (small eatery) by the bus station and an equally swift tour of Calle Crisologo before catching another bus bound for Manila. Everybody seems to be asleep in Vigan by 8PM. and places to see (or eat in) are closed.
Vigan, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has a lot more to offer but seeing the city's world renowned cobblestone street turned golden after an evening rain was a great consolation.
I will be back for more, soon I hope.
