Iloilo: Up Close in Photographs

What better way to describe my beloved home province, Iloilo, than by pictures.

Included in the gallery are:

  • University of the Philippines in the Visayas Main Building – it was once a city hall donated by the city governement to the institution;
  • Deco’s La Paz Batchoy – the first thing that comes in to mind when you say “Iloilo”, the special La Paz Batchoy;
  • Jaro Cathedral – Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria;
  • Jaro Cathedral Belfry – it’s standing alone in the plaza, separate from the Cathedral structure;
  • Lou Franz Beach Resort – I still have to make a separate post regarding this. Watch out for that soon;
  • Miag-ao Church – one of the world’s heritage site in the Philippines;
  • Tigbauan Church – and the famous mosaic inside the church.
