Iloilo Churches: The Fusion Of The Old And The New

Iloilo Churches: The Fusion Of The Old And The New

Butchoy’s wrath did not stop me and Regine from conquering nine towns that day. I almost cancelled out the last minute because of the recent storm that passed but the Manang Bola in me prevailed and I am glad I did not. Our itinerary for day one. Miag Ao – Guimbal – Tigbauan – Oton – Villa Arevalo – Molo – Mandurriao – Jaro – IloIlo City. From my hotel (Century 21), we hopped onto a Jeepney going to the market.

1.  Miag-Ao

Miag Ao Church, A UNESCO World Heritage Site

From Market (locals call it Super) to Miag-Ao.

2.  Guimbal

Guimbal Church
We thought the rain will not let up, but good thing it did

3.  Tigbauan


Looks like a scene from a thriller-suspense movie 🙂

This church’s beauty is best seen from a distance

4.  Oton

The shots are hazy and dark because the weather did not fully cooperate with us

5. Villa-Arevalo

One of the newer churches in Iloilo.  I am missing the antique, old-age look

Statue of Rizal erected at the park not far from the church

6.  Molo

The castle-like Molo Church’s facade

7. Mandurriao

I like this Church. Looks neat and clean.  This is also an old church recently repainted

8.  Jaro

Big Ben in Jaro?
Jaro Church
 I love this shot!

9. Ilo-Ilo City

 

Open during office hours


We ate a heavy breakfast that was why we did not go hungry during lunch time. A bibingka snack in the middle will do. P20 for 5 small pieces. Trust me, they are delicious! We bought ours outside Molo Cathedral. The best bibingka I have tasted I tell you! Later on, we walked from Jaro to downtown Iloilo and paid a short visit to the museum.
