Information about Muelle Loney
Muelle Loney, also known as the River’s Wharf of Iloilo, is a great spot to appreciate the history and success of the city. It also has one of the best sunset views in town.
With its important role in the flourishing success of the sugar industry in the area during the 1800s to 1900s, Muelle Loney served as a bridge of making Iloilo City an important trading city in the Western Visayas and one of the wealthiest cities in the country. Local goods from Iloilo and its neighboring islands are gathered in Muelle Loney before being transported outside the country.
Today, it is one of the most important and busiest ports in Iloilo, Negros, and Guimaras. Although the wealthy label it once claimed is gone, Muelle Loney serves as a reminder of the success of Iloilo and how with great determination and perseverance, success can be attained once again by the city that was once called the Queen City of the South.
