It’s official, Vigan advances to the next round of the international Search for the new Seven wonder Cities of the World!
It feels right that Vigan is on that list! For one, it is a very historical place where some of the oldest churches of our country where built during the Baroque era. Art, culture, music and people mesh with the modern age. Wildlife preservation, and our culture’s heritage are being constantly highlighted and boasted to tourist and the like.
Also since 1999, Vigan has been added to the World Heritage List by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization).
My experience in Vigan was for sure one of the highlights of my 2013. I went there twice within the same month! It was May 2013!
Congrats and like Puerto Princesa Underground River who is listed as the New 7 Wonders of Nature, Vigan will also be in the list of the World’s New 7 Wonder Cities!!
