The Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asuncion in Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur is among the four Baroque churches that are recognized as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines.
Vigan's history can be traced all the way back to 1758, when the Seat of Nueva Segovia was transferred from Lal-lo, Cagayan to the already flourishing Spanish settlement. As a result, the Ciudad Fernandina de Vigan was established by virtue of a Royal Decree issued by King Fernando VI of Spain.
Villa Angela was built in 1873 by the spouses Don Agapito Florendo y Bonifacio, who was a gobernadorcillo of La Ciudad Fernandina (Vigan) in 1859, and Doña Maria Villanueva.
Everything in rustic Vigan is charming. But you have never been to this UNESCO World Heritage Site if you have not set foot in Calle Crisologo.
