Discover why Iloilo City is dubbed the City of Love with this half-day heritage tour around the city’s historical and cultural sites. If you’re interested to get an in-depth understanding of Iloilo’s culture and history, then this tour is for you.

Your excursion begins right after the designated tour guide picks you up within Iloilo City. You will be making your way to Jaro, the Business District of Iloilo, where your first destination, Casa Mariquit, is located. Located inside a small tree-lined street, this heritage house is a two-story private home owned by the Javenalla and Lopez family. It is considered as the oldest ancestral home in the province. 

A kilometer away from the house is Jaro Cathedral. Built in 1864, the church is the first of its kind to be declared a National Shrine in the Visayas and Mindanao area. Travel back in time as you step inside the 200-year-old church and pay a visit to the miraculous image of the Lady of Candles. Afterwards, you will be passing through the Millionaire’s Row of Jaro where you will see sprawling mansions of the province’s richest families.

See more of Iloilo’s historical structures as you explore Casa Real, the old capitol building of Iloilo. You will also be passing by Muelle Loney, Iloilo’s river wharf, and Fort San Pedro, the city’s first frontier. Witness the grandeur of Molo Mansion, a significant historic house in Iloilo, that now stands as a souvenir shop. Just across the street from the mansion is Molo Church, a neo-gothic church built in 1831.

From the church, you will be taken to the Deocampo's, a family-owned bakeshop in Iloilo that has been in operation since 1896. If you're lucky, you will get to witness how Barquillos are skillfully made in the bakery. This crispy rolled wafer pastry originating from Spain is a popular delicacy in the province.
