Rich History

Don Gaspar Bartolome, the Spanish Juez de Paz de Cavecera, built this brick and mortal house on 1885 where he resided with his wife, Doña Mathilde Ortiz.

The ownership was passed to the Carino family in 1850 when the heirs of Don Gaspar decided to seek their fortune in Laoag, Ilocos Norte. Misfortune struck when the house and five others were destroyed by fire on January 27, 1942. Looters ransacked the Chinese store along Crisologo Street as an offshoot of the Japanese invasion and the evacuation of Vigan residents to the far-flung barrios.

The sturdy foundations and brick walls of the ruins remained unscathed by the strong earthquake in 1956 that damaged and destroyed many adobe tiled roofs.

The property was later sold in 1965 to the then Governor Carmeling Pichay Crisologo (1963-1971) who undertook its restoration that gave rise to the Cordillera Inn.
