#22 Villa Angela


When we travel for photography, we try to get there the same way the locals do, by local bus, pump boat, or on foot if that's their mode of transportion. It helps set the creative mood for our photographs.

We arrived in the town of Vigan in Ilocos Sur, looking to photograph the historic homes along the cobblestoned Calle Crisologo. We were there to photograph a part of Philippine history, a small well-preserved Spanish town built in the 1800's. So why not stay in a home-turned-hotel built in 1870?

Villa Angela was such a place. We slept and lived among the same antique furniture used by the original owners over a hundred years ago. High ceilings, paneled wooden walls, old pictures taken over a hundred years ago, and intricately carved four-poster beds... What better way to soak up all that history while pondering our photography? Enjoy.
