I Dream of Viganon March 2, 2012 at 2:48 PM
I wonder where I can find kamado grills. I saw my friends’ photos of their Vigan trip and she said that a fellow traveler cum tourist with them in that journey, talked about such grill almost endlessly. I laughed at the thought that my friend could be freaking out each time their companion would open his mouth,lol. Anyway, I told the husband and wife tandem to continue keeping in touch with their new found friend so they can tell me where to get the said grill.
As for Vigan sights to see, I wish to walk this street soon.. Calle Crisologo, where houses live up to the era from when life had been busy in this part of the Philippines. There are lots of antique shops and home-museums in this street. Aside from Crisologo, there is also Plaridel Street. Both streets are actually known for the houses which were built during the Spanish era, and the streets ar lined with cobblestones. This made Vigan part of the list for the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Another must-visit place is the Baluarte, where animals roam freely… I am sure my daughter would love it there…
Apart from the ones mentioned above, I would also like to visit the Pagburnayan, which is actually a barrio in Vigan where tourists can see how the famous Vigan jars (burnay) are made. Of course, as mentioned by most Vigan guides, Vigan Empanadaan should not be missed. It’s a reserved location at the eastern part of Plaza Burgos, where visitors can sample Vigan’s famous empanada as well as sinanglao (traditional hotpot made of beef innards). But of course, there is more to that. Hope our trip there will push through before the year ends.
