Nothing real special here but the city itself didn't have much for tourist sights. You might as well go here because not much else to see there.

One of a kind church in Iloilo City or in the whole Philippines. All the statues of saints in the church are female. The church itself is century old and made of thick limestone.

This place is amazing, the church is fully air conditioned, well maintained and very accessible by all means of transportation. Its magnificent facade and beautiful interiors, its jaw dropping. I will definitely comeback and visit this church again in the future.

The church has been restored and if airconditioned during celebration of mass. The liturgy was solemn and after mass, you can lounge the plaza and enjoy the relaxed feel of the district of Molo. Then you can criss the street towards the Molo Mansion.
