From a long, long, long time ago

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” – Ruth Reichl

Vigan is a small town in Ilocos Sur, in the northern part of the Philippines. It has now become famous because it has become a UNESCO Heritage site. When you go there you will be transported to another place … to another era in time. With cobblestone streets, 19th century houses, carriages and calesas(horse drawn carriage) passing by and carrying passengers. This place has been preserved and shows the rich culture of days gone by.

I have here some seats, chairs, benches photos for Xingfumama’s Pull Up a Seat Challenge

This is the Syquia Mansion which just recently turned into a Museum. This is a 19th century stone mansion in Vigan, ilocos Sur. This mansion has opulent rooms, period furnishings, grand mirrors and original artworks.

This is the Hotel Luna (where we stayed overnight), located in the heart of the capital, Vigan. This hotel is now the only museum hotel in the Philippines.
