The Lizares Mansion is one of Iloilo City's most elegant heritage mansions, with a combination of American and Spanish architectural designs. It was founded in 1937 by Don Emiliano Lizares, a Jaro-born sugar baron, and stands as a testament to Iloilo's thriving sugar industry at the time.
The Lizares estate, including the mansion, was sold to the Dominicans in 1962 and became the residence of Angelicum School Iloilo in 1978. The mansion is still used as the school chapel.
Every December, thousands of Christmas lights adorn every inch of the Lizares Mansion's exterior, making it an even more awe-inspiring sight. This is the ideal moment to go.
The Lizares Mansion is located in Tabuc Suba, Jaro, Iloilo City, along McArthur Drive. It is easily accessible by taxis and the following jeepney routes: Jaro Liko, La Paz, or Leganes. Ask the driver to drop you off at Angelicum. To get to the front lawn, you must first obtain authorization from the guard and inform them that you want to take photographs. If you wish to go into the mansion, you must make a reservation.
It is open everyday from 8 AM to 7 PM.
