FR. JOSE BURGOS MEMORIAL. At the heart of Plaza Burgos in Vigan City stands this monument, a dedication of love of Ilocanos dated February 17, 1910, for their beloved hero, Fr. Jose Apolonio Burgos who died with Fr. Mariano Gomez and Fr. Jacinto Zamora at Bagumbayan Field, now Luneta, on Feb. 17, 1872, because the Spanish military tribunal charged them with sedition and treason. (photo and text by Imelda C Rivero/PIA Ilocos Sur)
