Mellow Yellow Monday 032: Old colonial houses

MellowYellowBadge

My younger sister just came back from a weekend holiday up north, in the Ilocandia region of the Philippines. She and her friends visited the historic town of Vigan, the capital of Ilocos Sur and one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the Philippines.

Walking in the cobbled streets of Vigan, one could’nt help but imagine what it’s like there 500 years back when the Philippines was under the Spanish rule. Click for a larger view.

As you can see from the picture, the architectural style reflects mostly Spanish influences. I love  the lighted lamps, so antique.

I hope to visit Vigan one day. I want to.¬† I can imagine myself walking in the cobbled streets of Vigan, surrounded by these well-preserved brick and wooden houses, with the sounds of the kalesa and the occasional neighing of the horses. I can’t help but imagine what it’s like there 500 years back when the Philippines was under the Spanish rule.

I should visit Vigan soon.
