When you're already in Iloilo, you should not miss the Church of Santo Tomas de Villanueva or the Miag-ao Church, which is located approximately 40 kms southwest of the city
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.
