A week long of fiesta of the City of Vigan characterized by carnivals,
parades, musical extravaganzas, beauty and popularity contests,
and nightly cultural shows, culminating with the celebration of
the "conversion" of St. Paul the apostle, the city's patron
saint, on January 25.
The observance of the Holy Week is one of Vigan's foremost tourist
attractions. Tourists flock to join local devotees in the religious
processions with life-size statutes in "carrozas" and
participate in the traditional "pasion" and "visita
iglesia". Its own share of religious pageantry and the people's
public demonstration of sanctity and piety make its local rendering
a memorable experience for all.
