Bucket List of 17 Things To Do in Zamboanga City's Historic District

Vigan is best known for Calle Crisologo, a street dotted with numerous Spanish-era houses. For years, I had been trying to plan a trip to that very historic and romantic place, but I realize now that in my hometown, we have our own Calle Crisologo. Zamboanga city's Calle Crisologo stretches from Plaza Pershing to Fort Pilar. In that stretch of pavement, one can find several commercial, civic, religious, government, and residential edifices that boast of architecture from the early 18th century to the early 20th century. Traveling through Zamboanga city's historic district can be done and is best done on foot.

Here is my bucket list of 17 things to do in Zamboanga city's historic district. Don't forget to click on the photos to enlarge them.
