Ilocos Sur is a beautiful province that boasts amazing natural wonders and proud locals. But it is more recognized for being a place full of history and rich culture. It has successfully preserved much of its historic structures and villages, all of them still standing tall among commercial areas and districts. Ilocos Sur is one of the must-see places for tourists who want to understand the diverse culture and colorful history of the Philippines.

The capital city of Vigan is one of the most important historic destinations in the Philippines. It is one of the few Spanish-colonial towns left in the country. Walking around Vigan is a unique experience in itself. The old houses and mansions, the cobblestone-stoned streets, as well as the horse-drawn carriage known as the "kalesa" all take you back to a world only seen in Philippine history books and movies. This historic town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders Cities.

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site is the Church of our Lady of Assumption or the Santa Maria Church. This grand church was built in the 18th century using brick and mortar. It stands on top of a hill to act as a fortress in addition to being a religious center. Visited by pilgrims yearly, it was also declared as a National Historical Landmark.

Aside from its historical attractions, Vigan is frequented by visitors for its delicacies like the savory empanada, garlic sausage or longganisa, and deep fried pork belly called bagnet.

By Land
The province of Ilocos Sur is located more than 400 kilometers north of Metro Manila. The more common means of getting there is via land transportation. There are a number of buses found in the city that are bound for Ilocos Sur, each following a schedule and has various bus amenities to offer its passengers.
Philippine Rabbit, Partas, and Dominion are just some of the major bus companies that serve the Manila-Ilocos Sur route. The travel time usually takes about seven hours.
By Air
Traveling to Ilocos Sur by air is also possible, though flights are not direct. Travelers will have to fly to the nearby province of Laoag via the Laoag International Airport. Once there, you will then have to ride a bus bound for Ilocos Sur, which usually takes about an hour.
How to Get Around
By Tricycle
This is the most popular means of transportation once you have arrived in Ilocos Sur. They are widely available in the province, so catching a ride wouldn’t be a problem.
By Jeepney and Mini Bus
Public jeepneys and mini buses are also available. These are often preferred over tricycles for trips between towns and cities within Ilocos Sur.
By Calesa
When in Vigan, these horse-drawn carriages can also be your mode of transportation. They are the perfect way to roam Calle Crisologo, making you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time.

What to See

Ilocos Sur is known as the “Heritage Province” of the Philippines. Surely, a visit to this charming town will not be complete without walking down memory lane and visiting the province’s heritage landmarks.
The Archbishop’s Palace, also known as the Arzobispado Nueva Segovia, is the oldest and the only surviving archbishop’s residence in the country. Built in the 18th century, the palace is also a museum where religious artifacts and relics are prominently displayed.
The Vigan Cathedral, also known as the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Conversion of St. Paul the Apostle, traces its roots to a small wood and thatch church that was built in the area in 1574. It has undergone renovations and rehabilitations through the centuries and has evolved into an Earthquake Baroque-style cathedral that serves as the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Nueva Segovia.
The Saint Augustine Parish Church in Bantay, Ilocos Sur, is also one of the oldest churches in the Ilocos Region, having been built in 1590. The church is home to the miraculous image of the Our Lady of Charity, who is the patroness of Ilocandia. Its belfry is also historic, having served as the watchtower of pirates during the Spanish era and of the invading forces during World Wars I and II.
The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption, more commonly known as the Santa Maria Church, is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The brick church was intentionally built on top of a hill in 1765 to serve not only as a place of worship but also as a lookout spot for the Spanish soldiers.
Perhaps the highlight of any visit to Ilocos Sur is the walk down Vigan Heritage Village. A stroll down Calle Crislogo is unlike any other you’ve ever taken: The street is made of cobble stones and both sides are lined with ancestral homes. These structures will transport you back in time, giving you a glimpse of what life was like back during the time of the Spanish occupancy in the country.
Natural Attractions
Not only is Ilocos Sur a province rich in heritage, it also has a number of natural attractions that you will surely find delightful. Barangay Suso and Barangay Nalvo in the town of Santa Maria are known for their stunning beaches where you can enjoy the sun, the sand, and the sea. Suso Beach, in particular, features clear waters that will lure you in for a refreshing swim.
A trek to Pinsal Falls is also an activity that you shouldn’t miss when in Ilocos Sur. You’ll pass through earthen stairs, rivers, and a rainforest before the cascading waters of Pinsal Falls welcome you. Its cool waters are totally refreshing—a welcome treat after that short but exciting trek.
If you’re a mountaineer, then a climb up Tirad Peak should definitely be included in your itinerary. The peak is situated right above the Tirad Pass—the historic site of the Battle of Tirad Pass between Filipino and American soldiers in 1899. The hike to Tirad Peak is considered a major climb with a five out of nine level of difficulty and takes about six to eight hours. Once at the summit, the view of the provinces of Ilocos Sur, Abra, and Benguet will surely take your breath away.
Man-Made Attractions
The Padre Burgos Museum is where you’ll find memorabilia of Jose Burgos, a martyred priest and one third of the GomBurZa trio. Local history is also depicted through dioramas and other ethnographic displays in the museum.
The Syquia Mansion is a definite must-visit when in the city. The mansion is the ancestral home of former First Lady Doña Alicia Quirino, the wife of President Elpidio Quirino. The house safekeeps several mementos from the late President, while the rooms are also a sight to behold as they are decorated with lavish ornaments.
The Baluarte Mini Zoo is where kids and kids-at-heart will have a great time. Suests can freely mingle with its animals such as deers, horses, impalas, camels, a variety of bird species, and even tigred. The “golden” rest house of former Ilocos Sur Governor Chavit Singson is also located in the Baluarte, though it not accessible to the public.
Ilocandia is also known for their earthenware. A visit to Vigan will also give you the opportunity to visit Pagburnayan, the renowned pottery center in the city.
Events and Festivals
Every February, the entire province celebrates the Kannawidan Festival to commemorate the separation of the two Ilocoses into north (Ilocos Norte) and south (Ilocos Sur). Dances, songs, cook fests, and trade fairs happen all throughout the festival.
The Vigan Festival is also another highly anticipated event in Ilocos Sur. It is held every first week of May, featuring street dances, calesa parade, playing of traditional games as well as Santacruzan.
Where to Eat
Café Leona is a highly recommended restaurant in Ilocos Sur. The restaurant serves Filipino, Japanese, and European dishes. Their bestsellers are the bagnet bacon maki, the bagnet KBL pizza, and the pinakbet pizza. Café Leona is where you can also get a taste of Vigan’s famous delicacy—Vigan longganisa.
Kusina Felicita, meanwhile, is known for their authentic Ilocano dishes such as their pinakbet with bagnet, dinengdeng with tilapia, and poqui poqui balls. Café Uno, located not too far away from Kusina Felicitas, is a spot for some delectable desserts. Their carrot cake and chocolate fudge are definitely worth the extra calories.
For those who are craving for something aside from Filipino dishes, you may want to try the Thai dishes at Kuboville. Their beef tapa and vegetable spring rolls are favorites as well as their tom yum and phad thai.
Lastly, if you want to try the highly recommended Vigan empanada, you can head to Lilong and Lilang Restaurant.
