EXPERIENCING HERITAGE: ILOCOS SUR

There are a lot of must-see places here in Ilocos. Our first stop was the Baluarte Zoo.
The owner, Chavit Singson, open the zoo for free. There are tigers, birds and even
a pony to ride on. There are also dinosaur statues to have pictures. Here is my
shot.


Another place we visited was the St. Augustine Parish Church, also known as Bantay Church. The Bantay Tower was a historic one.
It served as a watchtower for pirates during the Spanish colonial era, which gave its name Bantay (meaning to guard). Build
in 1590, and the oldest in Ilocos Region.



Another historic place we visited was the Heritage Village in Vigan. We roam around Calle Crisologo riding a "kalesa" (a horse with cart).


Hope you can visit Ilocos Sur too. Sure a historic rich culture.
