It's within st augustine's compound, and part of the ruins from before. Entrance is free and you wont spend too much time unless there are some prayers involved

The site was somehow meant to be a tourist destination but the ambience is still fit for a prayer or meditation nook. It has clean restrooms and there are people or staff who could assist on queries . A must see when you're in Vigan

Calm and serene experience, but some explanation or write up at entrance would help, so do your research before you go.

This place is wonderful, peaceful, and a place to reflect. Its like a secret garden. This place was empty most people were in the bell tower.

Inside St. Augustine Church is this small chapel by the ruins. It is serene, and you can sit down and reflect for a couple of minutes. When we visited, there was a guy there who offers to take photos of you together with a special...More

I am not Catholic but for me this place (away from the crowd at the Bantay Bell Tower) is a place to be if you want to meditate...its crowd-free, secluded and serene
