Rizal in Iloilo

By on July 28, 2011
The iconic Molo Parish Church in Iloilo City in Central Philippines is also known as the 'Women's Church' or the 'feminine church' because of its life-sized figures of women saints. They are Sta. Marcela, Apolonia, Genoveva, Isabel, Felicia, Ines, Monica, Magdalena, Juliana, Lucia, Rosa de Lima, Teresa, Clara, Cecilia, Margarita and Marta. It stands out literally in the Iloilo skyscape with its tall pointed towers which whisper of Gothic and Renaissance influences. It was constructed in 1831 and amazingly survived earthquakes and wars thereafter. It was declared a national landmark by the National Historical Institute in 1992.

He likes museums, spicy food and talking with habal-habal drivers. For now, he's still deciding on whether to play Pokémon GO or not.
