From there, you will be traveling to Miagao Church, also known as Santo Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the four Baroque Churches in the Philippines. Next stop is Molo Church, a neo-gothic colonial church built in 1831. It was dubbed as a feminist church because of its all-women saints ensemble inside.
Before the tour ends, you will be stopping by the Jaro Cathedral, one of Iloilo’s oldest churches. Built in 1864, this Baroque-style cathedral is home to the “Lady of Candles”, the only rose among the all-male row of saints inside the church.
