Bantay - watch and guard

One iconic symbol around Vigan is the Bantay Belltower. Built in 1591, it served as a watchtower later as a bell tower in 1857. It is not far from the city of Vigan, located in the town of Bantay, Ilocos Sur.

The tower is established on a hill, making it a vantage point for those who were assigned to guard over the towns of Vigan and Bantay.

Just sign a guestbook before the entrance to the tower and up you go.
