20/365: When In IloIlo: Photo Tour – Road Trip To Molo

Today’s destination is Molo!
Molo is one of the seven districts of Iloilo City.  It was built by Spaniards and was formerly called the Parian (Chinatown) due to its large number of Chinese residents and their business establishments in the area at the time. 
Its name was later changed to Moro during the frequent arrival of Muslim pirates from Mindanao until it later evolved into Molo. Molo was a town before it was absorbed by Iloilo City during its charter in 1937. (Source: Wikipedia)
For those who knew me better you probably know what is my particular target when I do visit a town.  But before we talk about that let me give you first another tour through these photos taken during my road trip to Molo.   Again most photos are taken while I’m on a speeding vehicle.

On the way to Molo…

The ANGELICUM SCHOOL and the LIZAREZ MANSION
The Angelicum school is a private Catholic school inside the compound of the LIZAREZ MANSION  located at Tabuc Suba, Jaro Iloilo City.  It is built in 1937 by Don Emiliano Lizarez for his family.

This is one of the most elegant structure in Iloilo City - a combination of Spanish and American architecture.  What I remember about this place is that it is such a huge attraction during the Christmas season because of its magnificent holiday lights.

SM CITY ILOILO – located at Sen Benigno Aquino Jr. Avenue, Jaro West Diversion Road, Mandurriao District, Iloilo City and considered as the biggest shopping mall in Western Visayas.

Remember the small Bibingka in my “must eat food list in Iloilo” post?  Well this is where that photo is taken.
Yes this is the shameless me eating like a glutton just outside the church which is the main reason for this road trip.  The Bibingka is just a “side temptation” ha ha!

  2. And speaking of "Molo" - apart from its a name of a town, masarap din siya kasi food din hahaha.
