La fontana danzante di Vigan

Al centro della piazza Salcedo una grande fontana rettangolare, la Dancing Fountain che, grazie ad un complesso sistema idraulico, intorno alle 19.00 si scatena con un tourbillon di acqua, luci e musica, alla presenza di un folto pubblico assiepato sui palchi predisposti.

 

Vigan’s Dancing Fountain, Ilocos Sur Philippines

Vigan is one of Philippines’ most beautiful cities, as it showcases the Spanish heritage of the country. It is located in the northern part of the Philippines and it is listed on the UNESCO world heritage list for it’s unique Spanish colonial history in Asia and the very well preserved Spanish monumental buildings which where build in the 18th century.

 

Vigan’s Dancing Fountain is one of the recent tourist spot that you will never missed and it is located at Plaza Salcedo, where they hold it every night. Plaza Salcedo is named after the founder of Vigan City, Juan de Salcedo. He named it Villa Fernandina de Vigan before it became Ciudad Fernandina, and finally, Vigan City.

 

The plaza was renovated into a huge fountain area, dancing fountains synced with music and lights. Music varies from slow, upbeat, novelty and classic songs. While the water and lights follow the beat.

 

There’s no entrance fee, so better go early as the place is jam packed before the show starts at around 7pm. Scout a higher spot for best viewing experience. The show lasted around 30 – 45 minutes. Overall, this is a treat that you should not miss when in Vigan after visiting the city. A great way to cap the night.

 

It’s more fun in the Philippines.
