Located in Vigan City, the Syquia Mansion operates as a museum that withstood the test of time. The mansion is built during the Spanish colonial era and recognized as one of the oldest bahay na bato (stone houses) in Vigan. It’s entirely made of stone and bricks using traditional building materials in 1835. Since it’s a unique remnant of Philippine history, the heritage home was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Upon visit, you can see various furniture and architectural designs that combine Filipino, Chinese, and Spanish influences. The three artworks of National Artist for Painting Fernando Amorsolo are also located in the museum.
No doubt, Ilocos is rich in cultural spots that you can visit in rain or shine!
