Vigan Series - The Great Leader (Part 4)

Congressman Crisologo was shot inside St. Paul's cathedral in 1970. I wonder if the gunman, who up to now is still unidentified, was a human being during the time of the tragedy. Nevertheless, the legacy still remains in his house/museum. Tita Remy, the caretaker, was kind and gracious enough to welcome us. Here are the pics. (Copyright applies)

  1. Interesting photos. Now I remember. The Crisologo Family wasn't only influential in Ilocos. They actually ruled over it, long before Marcos established his rule there.

    He was in fact one of the most illustrious and famous congressman at the time. He had his share of admirer and enemies as well.

    The house simply show how wealthy the man was and how powerful his family was.

    I laughed so hard at the picture of the antique toilet. Did they also kept their feces intact as one of the mementos as well? hahahaha!

  2. funny comment sir. no feces as of the moment, all was left was a blank hole. scary refrigerator though. if i was living there ill go for the wooden ref rather than the huge one which is weird because they have a movie now coming base on the ref
