Finally, I have time to blog about the most famous street in Vigan, Calle Crisologo. As soon as I saw the place, I knew that this was definitely what I was looking for to have my ootd photos taken! It reminded me of the Philippines I read about in history books. Now I understand why Vigan was officially recognized as one of the 7 wonder cities of the world, it was truly beautiful <3
Many Filipinos spend a lot to go and see tourist sites of other countries. I hope they would be as eager to visit beautiful places like this and learn to appreciate our very own <3
If you’re not yet familiar with Vigan, here are 3 facts about it that I would like to share with you! :)
Fact 1: it used to be a settlement of traders from China and was first called “Bee Gan” meaning “beautiful Shore”.
Fact 2: When the Spaniards came and colonized the place, they changed the B to V and that is how it got its name “Vigan”.
Fact 3: on December 7, 2014. Vigan was officially designated as one of the New 7 Wonder Cities of the world making the city famous worldwide.
