It's my third time in Iloilo but it feels like first timer ako. Why? dahil first time kong pupuntahan ang mga lugar na to.
Once we arrived at Iloilo airport around 10am, we get a shuttle heading to MOLO. You can easily find that shuttle coz it's just outside the arrival area. Hanapin nyo lang ung van na going to Molo that cost about 50php. Dadaan din ito ng SM Iloilo but since we need to maximize our time, much better if we head straight to our first destination which is the MOLO CHURCH.
The van will stop on their terminal, from there pwede mong lakarin ung church, (wag maniwala sa mga taxi driver na sasabihin ang layo). But since mejo mabigat ang dala namin gamit at sobrang init we take a jeepney heading to "VILLA / AREVALO". You won't missed the church, just tell the driver ibaba kau sa molo plaza or molo simbahan (magkatapat lang yon)
MOLO church = also called "the feminist church", dahil sa loob nito may mga rebulto ng santo na pawang mga kababaihan lamang. The church architecture was indeed magnificent. It has one of the most interesting design i've ever seen.
Infront of the church they have a cute plaza...
From Molo church, sakay ka ng jeepney going to San Joaquin and they will drop you dun mismo sa simbahan ng Miagao. Ride was about one hour but behold, ang mga jeepney dito parang killer bus lang so most of the time less than one hour andun ka na =)
One of the four baroque churches in the Philippines that still remains standing strong and proud, I was amazed by its unique beauty and history. Kakaiba ang simbahan na to, ung mga carvings sa harap ng church, ung mga poste nya, and kung gaano ito kalaki.
I enjoyed church sight seeing whenever i travel and this two churches made my day =)
