As the name suggests, the Dancing Fountain offers a stunning display of lights and water accompanied by both traditional and contemporary music. Audiences will enjoy towering pillars of water dancing to the beat, along with colorful light displays that complete the 30-minute show.
While the Dancing Fountain is often the last stop of a whole-day tour, there are also several sites around the fountain if you want to make the most of your visit. Overlooking the fountain is Vigan Cathedral and its bell tower, serving as a mesmerizing backdrop for the show. Various government and private buildings also surround the fountain, all boasting Vigan’s unique architectural beauty.
The Dancing Fountain has shows every night from 7:30 PM to 8:00 PM. On weekends, it holds a second show from 8:30 PM to 9:00 PM. Make sure you add this spectacle to your Ilocos Sur itineraries!
The Dancing Fountain is located across the provincial capitol and the Vigan Cathedral, and it is only a few minutes away from other Vigan attractions such as Calle Crisologo and Syquia Mansion. Many day tours that take you around Vigan end their itineraries with the fountain’s show.
