Syquia Mansion

Syquia Mansion, the landmark located along the quaint street of Quirino Boulevard, is a historically significant building that is built to honor the late Elpidio Quirino, the sixth president of the Philippines.

Formerly a home to Elpidio Quirino’s family during the 1900s, the Syquia Mansion now stands as a museum of stunning beauty — the home, one of Vigan’s first Bahay-na-Bato, is inspired by classic Spanish luxury and architecture. The first floor, which serves as a garage, contains the family’s carriage, while the second floor includes paintings by Juan Luna, Fernando Amorsolo, items of the past such as a ventanilla, grand furniture like four-poster beds, other interesting memorabilia, and a central courtyard also known as azotea. With items from the past arranged in such an informative, picturesque way, it’s safe to say that Syquia Mansion is truly a door to the past — a door that helps locals and tourists alike appreciate Vigan more.
