Las Casas Bajo de las Campanas
Vigan was an important Spanish settlement during colonial times. Author and researcher Raquel B. Florendo explores the interior spaces of the principalia houses in Vigan, Ilocos Sur during the 1800s-1900s and reconstructs the socio-cultural context of that place and time in this book. To glean social and cultural insights, Florendo examines the residential patterns, colonial structures, architectural features, construction materials, and the facets of residential life in Vigan during the 19th century. She looks into the hierarchy of spaces, furniture, arrangement, decoration, accessories, and aesthetic standards and interprets social symbols and cultural indicators that reveal the Filipino way of life.
