Vigan, the capital of the Province of Ilocos Sur, is located on the west coast of Luzon Island. It has the most intact examples of a planned Spanish colonial town in Asia, which was established in the 16th century. Vigan’s location at the river delta of the Abra River along the north-western coastline of the main island of Luzon, made this an important trading post before the colonial era. View more

The city’s architecture reflects the melding of cultural elements from within the Philippines and China region with those of Europe and Mexico.

The City is unique for having preserved much of its Hispanic colonial character and historic urban lay out.

Excursions depuis VIGAN SALOMAGUE PORT

Badoc Historical Landmarks

Visit the historical places of Badoc Ilocos Norte during this extended half-day excursion with lunch at the beach.


Badoc Town, Juan Luna Shrine & St. John the Baptist Parish Church

Depart from the pier for approximately 30-minute drive to Badoc Town. Badoc is a coastal municipality in the province of Ilocos Norte. In 1571, when the Spanish conquistadors had Manila more or less under their control, they began looking for new sites to conquer. As they sailed along the coast, they were surprised to see numerous sheltered coves (looc) where the locals lived in harmony. As a result, they named the region Ylocos and its people Ylocanos.


Badoc is most known for being the birthplace of the very popular Filipino personality, Juan Luna. It is here that the Juan Luna Shrine which houses mostly the reproductions of his precious artworks can be found. The Shrine is the reconstructed two storey ancestral house of the Luna brothers: the painter Juan Luna, the revolutionary general Antonio Luna, and the violinist Manuel Luna. Built in the typical middle class fashion, the house was burned down in 1861 and was rebuilt using clay bricks and molave wood. Antique lovers will definitely find joy stepping into this abode with the abundance of antique displays around, including a 120-year old 4-posted bed that Juan Luna himself used.


Also known as Badoc Church, St. John the Baptist Parish Church was constructed in 1591. At present, the church houses the miraculous statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary venerated under the title Virgin of Miracles, the 400-year old imagery of the Virgin Mary found in a floating box by some fishermen back in the 17th century and believed to be a miracle for many pilgrims of the town. The celebrated Philippine painter Juan Luna was baptized in Badoc Church on 27 October 1857.
