This beautiful old Spanish era bell tower should not be missed. It is well worth a visit and presents very good picture taking opportunities.

Another historical place in Ilocos Sur a must visit place. I'm amaze with the over looking view at the top of the bell tower. And it's a picture perfect both in entrance and at the top of the tower

Better if you come here on weekdays as there's a few tourist in the area and Its an advantage when you like to pose and take pictures :-) An amazing construction that was built by bricks in every detail.

Make it a part of your Vigan day tour. Entrance fee is mandated but the amount is not compulsory. There is a registration desk at the entrance. You get to sign your name and input the amount you wish to "contribute". Great photo opportunity.

Not a very tall tower - only 2-3 flights of stairs so can be climbed pretty easily. The tower is quite small so can only fit 8-10 people at the top. Nice views of the city. Best to visit early to beat the crowds

The bell tower is a famous icon in bantay. It was featured in numerous movies and tv. The tower is instragram material. However, the historic side is under value.

I give this rating for two ratings. First, sets majestically high on a hill. Second, you could actually climb the interior to the top to see the bells and appreciate the views of the surrounding countryside. It originally had a security role, not surprising from...More
