The smaller of the two major plazas in Vigan, it was build to commemorate Father Jose P. Burgos, one part of GomBurZa, the martyr priests who died for our country during Spanish rule.

Father Jose P. Burgos was one of the three martyr priests, collectively known as GomBurZa. Considered as the first to go against Spanish rule in the country, they fought for reforms so Filipino priests will be treated with respect by their Spanish peers.
The plaza is best known for its empanadahan and other vendors selling street food like okoy (shrimp patty) and ice cream. It’s also the best place to talk to locals about their town and some of its hidden gems.
It’s also a great place for observing how the locals interact, as it is one of two major plazas in Vigan. It’s only a few minutes walk from here to Calle Crisologo, so you won’t be that far from what the city of Vigan has to offer.
You can find Plaza Burgos along Florentino St., Vigan City, Ilocos Sur.
