"Together with the Vigan traditional horse-drawn carriages [calesa] and the century-old belfry, the orange bloom colors the atmosphere of Plaza Burgos making way for a great summer ambiance and cultural escapade experience!"

Plaza Burgos is the most popular park in the UNESCO World Heritage City of Vigan in the province of Ilocos Sur, Philippines. The residents and tourists usually come here to play and to eat empanada, sinanglao and other Vigan specials. But I just don't know if the people going here has ever noticed the orange bloom of Plaza Burgos. The empanadas and the monuments at Plaza Burgos have always been seen and featured in many travel blogs and websites.

I am referring to the fire trees blooming and the flowers are falling in bright orange around the park to the ground.

Together with the Vigan traditional horse-drawn carriages [calesa] and the century-old belfry, the orange bloom colors the atmosphere of Plaza Burgos making way for a great summer ambiance and cultural escapade experience! 

In fact, these fire trees actually bloom into an optimum level during summer and that's great! Summer is the peak season for tourist arrival in Vigan City and surely they will be able to notice this one.

During tourist peak season and weekend, a city ordinance is regulating vehicles to enter Plaza Burgos making it an exclusive pedestrian-friendly zone. 

With this, the falling orange flowers are left untouched by the passing vehicles thus coloring the ground brightly.

Ok, I am just done promoting this personal encounter of mine and what do I want to happen now? Yes, the orange colors of Plaza Burgos might not be the main attraction of this park but admit it or not, it adds beauty to the park and can you tell me a city center which can offer this kind of view like here in Vigan? 

I think it's hard to point out being city centers are usually concreted and have left trees dying, usually but not all. Luckily, Vigan has also preserved not just it's cultural heritage but also it's natural heritage.
