Old Houses of Vigan

Here are some pictures of the old houses in Vigan’s Heritage Village. Enjoy the “bahay na bato” or the house made of stones and its cobbled streets.  You will also notice that the houses have the sliding capiz windows on its second floor, and the wooden doors on the first floor which were mainly used as the garage of the caritelas and storage room. In this picturesque Vigan Heritage Village, some of the old houses were converted in to antique shops, while others are now hotels and other commercial establishments, and yet some are still used as residential dwellings. So please be cautious and ask permission before entering.
