Molo Church

Molo Church

is a famous Spanish-colonial church and heritage site in Molo District. It known for the prominent red spires that crown its tall bell towers and as “the feminist church” because of the all-women ensemble of saints represented in 16 statues perched on the aisle pillars. Built in neogothic style, the church is one of the Iloilo City’s most familiar landmarks and top tourist attractions.

This magnificent structure can be best photographed during the late afternoon hours when the coral stone facade of the church reflects the soft golden rays of the sunset. While you are there, take a stroll in and around Molo Plaza. Also within an easy walk are a couple of remarkable heritage houses and the Iloilo Esplanade.
