    Nostalgic Vigan Of Wooden Mansions And Cobblestone Streets Of Yesterday Part 2

    One of the treasured Filipino traditions of Pasko (Christmas) is the daygon, or caroling. Children, teens, adults, or even the elderly, whether singly or in groups, approach a residence and sing beautiful Christmas songs. After a song or two, the household rewards the performers with money, food, clothes, or other items. Listening to these gentle melodies on the second floor of a Spanish bahay na bato must be a totally awesome experience.

    Albeit the absence of the daygon, we decided to visit some of the carefully preserved ancestral homes that make Vigan world-famous. These houses hold a lo ...

    The Crisologo Museum At Vigan City

    For a nineties kid, the Crisologo family name still rings a bell to me. The thing that actually pops into my mind is not related to Vigan City at all, but of actor Rudy Fernandez playing Bingbong Crisologo, a former Ilocano congressman turned charismatic preacher, who's father, Floro was gunned down inside a church.

    It was only a decade later that I realized that the said church is actually the Vigan Cathedral and the museum I'm stepping into now, his actual home.

    Welcome to the Crisologo Museum, an ancestral house owned by the clan which Vigan's famous Calle Crisologo is named after. Er ...
