The Heritage Village of quiet Vigan was institutionalized as part of the UNESCO World Heritage List November of 1999. It was valued for preserved architectural and landscape design which embodied a unique fusion of Asian design and European architecture of a trading town during the 18th century Spanish colonial times.
These centuries-old heritage houses line both sides of the cobblestoned half-kilometer stretch of Calle Crisologo (Crisologo Street). Currently a famous tourism site, most of the ground floors of these ancestral houses are made into shops of Vigan furniture and souvenirs.
