You can never travel to Vigan without stepping foot on Calle Crisologo.  The most photographed street in Vigan, Calle Crisologo is known for its cobblestone pavements and old Spanish structures.  These structures used to be houses of wealthy families during the Spanish colonial period but several were destroyed by fire during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines.  The burned houses were later on reconstructed and have been converted into inns, cafes, and shops selling items such as accessories, furniture, antiques, and other souvenir items.

Before it became Calle Crisologo in the 1900s, this historic street was called by various names – Calle Escolta de Vigan in 1the 500s during the Spanish period, Kasanglayan, and Washington Street during the American period.

Calle Crisologo can be explored either on foot or through a kalesa (horse-drawn carriage) ride.
