  • Visiting Vigan may have spiked your interest in the city’s Hispanic origins. Gratefully, there are a lot more places to satisfy your cravings to get more knowledge of the place, just like the National Museum of the Philippines’ Ilocos Museum Regional Complex in Burgos, Vigan City.

    The Ilocos Museum Regional Complex is a set of museums all located beside the provincial capitol building in Vigan. The complex is managed by the National Museum of the Philippines which means you may visit for free!

    The ancestral house of Padre Burgos, became a part of the National Museum of the Philippines Ilocos Complex.

    Two prominent figures in Philippine history are regarded in this museum namely Padre Jose Burgos, who was one of the 3 martyr priests who sought reform from the Spanish colonization, as well as the 6th President of the Philippines, Elpidio Quirino.

    Former President Elpidio Rivera Quirino is memorialized inside Ilocos Regional Museum Complex.

    Burgos Museum, also known to many as Padre Burgos House, which used to be the home of the prominent martyr priest, houses memorabilia associated with him, along with other artifacts that you can identify with the city of Vigan.
