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...
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.

MCDONALD's VIGAN is just one of the establishments that comply with the preservation and conservation of Vigan's heritage

Kung hinde ako nag-kakamali, ito dati ang nakatayo dyan.



Sang-ayon ako dun sa obserbasyon ni Pinoy_ako at amitaliri619.

Mukhang trying hard yung estilo na yan na makibagay sa nakapaligid na mga gusali. Mukha syang too toursity e.g. disneyland.

@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.
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?

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.:eek:hno::eek:hno::eek:hno:
And who said that the clergy were poor business managers.

I'm not quite sure, but I think this is similar to what they did in Lipa, where instead of a fence for the Cathedral, you have lots of stalls and commercial establishments. And also a fast food chain in the Balayan church compound. The best real estate location in a city or town would be the church. Centrally located and gets a lot of foot traffic.

I wonder where does the clergy invest the rental income or where does it go? Hmmmmm...........If i believe in conspiracy theories, it would be understandable why the clergy is against the RH bill.
