Iznart Street

Iznart Street in Iloilo City is a bustling commercial and educational district. It is the longest vein in the center of Iloilo's downtown. Its terminals are located in the north at the old Iloilo Provincial Capitol and in the south at the Iloilo Strait. Many streets intersect this grand business road, like Solis, as well as intersecting streets such as Delgado and Yulo, Arroyo and Ledesma, De Leon and Aldeguer, and Rizal.

It was named after Manuel Iznart, the alcalde-mayor of Iloilo in the late 1860s. People usually refer to this street as Iznart, but most, if not all, are unaware that it was renamed and even split in two in 1971.

Iznart Street has remained one of the city's commercial and educational hubs since the Spanish era and continues to do so today. Its famous historical monuments demonstrate that Iznart has played an important role in the city and province of Iloilo's trade and education. 

There are several notable organisations as well as a wide number of commercial enterprises varying in size from small to large.
