I saw a lot of improvements every time I went and the town became more vibrant. The historic town really worked hard to preserve its heritage sites. It's been recognized as the best preserved Spanish colonial town.
I love walking around Calle Crisologo. I remember buying a miniature wooden cabinet which I've been using for my accessories. I first saw it in 2007, but only bought it in 2012. If I got it in 2007 it would probably have gone under water during Typhoon Ondoy. The miniature wooden cabinet is one of my favourite travel souvenirs.
Sweetie though hasn't been to Vigan though and I'd love to come back and explore more of it and eat more empanada!
