by FFE PH News staff
Another Philippine treasure grabs international spotlight.
The sleepy historic city of Vigan in Ilocos Sur has made it to the finals of the New7Wonders Cities. Vigan is set to vie for a place in the top 7 alongside 27 other cities around the world, including Athens in Greece, London, Barcelona in Spain, Prague in Czech Republic and Istanbul in Turkey.
The 27 finalists will undergo 3 more rounds of elimination ending on December 7, 2014. New7Wonders foundation president Bernard Weber was particularly excited with the variety in the panel’s choice of finalists.
Weber said in a statement ‘Going forward, the New7Wonders Cities campaign will encourage debate about how cities should respond to the challenges of the present and the future. By voting in this worldwide campaign, people everywhere can decide the 7 cities that best represent the achievements and aspirations of our global urban civilization.’
