The cobblestone street is relatively a recent addition. I think it was laid out about 10 or 12 years ago. It does not date back to colonial times.Actually the other side of the street is Plaridel Street, and all the houses there are ancestral and they are actually preserved. The other side is V delos Reyes St which in the same way are old preserved houses. But unlike Crisologo St., those streets are not in cobblestone. However, they is a law in Vigan that prevents and regulates the altering, demolition and re-modifying the hundreds of old houses here, so they are all actually preserved...
Kung hinde ako nag-kakamali, ito dati ang nakatayo dyan.MCDONALD's VIGAN is just one of the establishments that comply with the preservation and conservation of Vigan's heritage
So the old photo is the old seminary in Vigan which burned down in the 60's? Does the diocese own the land and leases it out to commercial interests?@overturph,yes that is the old holy rosary college,then turned to saint paul college, na ngayon ay shopping center at department store na. hay naku,, nagkaroon din ng issue ito eh nang pumasok ang isang malaking shopping center.
And who said that the clergy were poor business managers.Yung kinatatayuan po ngayon ng McDo ay yun po ang dating seminaryo, ang lupang yun ay pag-aari ng simbahan like u said po. And yes, the land is for lease for commercial interest, sa katabi po ng mc do ay mga fastfood din at isang shopping center, banks, etc. na lupa rin ng simbahan. Sana nga po eh nagdevelop nalang sila ng ibang lugar para sa commerce.hno:hno:hno:
