Many of us have watched the movie of Fernando Poe, Jr. (FPJ). We know him so much that we almost made him our President of the Philippines. I happened to visit Vigan, Ilocos Sur and found out the shooting places of some of the movies of FPJ. In fact, Ilocos Sur was tag as FPJ county as he was often stayed there for long because of the movie Ang Panday. This movie was shoot several times because there were several continuation role into one movie after another. The movies were Ang Pagbabalik ng Panday in 1981, Ang Panday Ikatlong Yugto 1982, and Ang Panday Ika-apat na Aklat in 1984. So FPJ had stayed a lot in Vigan, Ilocos Sur. One of the shooting places of FPJ was the Bantay Bell Tower. This tower is named Bantay which means “to guard” because this was used as the observatory during the time of the Spaniards. Look at below how beautiful the Bantay Bell Tower which I posted in Instagram. This tower is already a tourist spot in Vigan. This is located beside the Church of Saint Agustin. This was visited by many people as the church is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines built in the 18th century during the Spanish time. So, when you come to this place you can visit the Bantay Bell Tower and the Saint Agustin Church, one of the oldest churches in the Philippines.
