Title: Iloilo: The City of Love
Post by: Lorenzo on August 18, 2011, 12:58:50 PM
Iloilo City, the Capital of Iloilo Province is considered to be one of the Philippines' oldest cities. It was founded the same time with Manila at 1571. The city lies between  Jaro river and Iloilo Straight making the city one of the country's  busiest seaports. The port of Iloilo once exported sugar products of Negros which added to the spur of the city's economic growth. When the port in Bacolod City was improved, the economy of the city declined. Today, the City progresses once again, reviving its forgotten existence. The city slowly recaptures its identity of being the trade center of the Visayas.

The City of Iloilo had been the educational center of the South, with the most Universities outside manila. The oldest University in the Province, Unibersidad de San Agustin, was founded on 1904 by spanish friars. Central Philippine University, the educational magnate of Western Visayas, is probably the largest Protestant Institution in the world. St. Paul's University and West Visayas State University had been recognized for producing quality board passers while University of the Philippines Visayas remains as the center of quality education in the region.

There are five suburban districts in Iloilo City; Jaro, once a city within a city, is the seat of power during Spanish regime, the district lives in an era of colonization. Until these days, its 19th century architecture is very remarkable. Manduriao and LaPaz are the city's residential and comercial capitals. Molo, the Athens of the Philippines is known for producing great political leaders such as senators and congressmen. Arevalo, the most colorful district of the city is known as the Flower village which bloom with different colors and captivating aromas.

Dinagyang lights up the streets of Iloilo on the fourth week of January, this festival commemorates Christianity in the Region. The Festival gives honor to the Child Jesus and the thundering "Hala Biras" of the performers fill the air with adrenalin pumping excitement. The ignition of street dances and the explosion of traditional music is a pleasent treat that will surely leave the spectators with awe.

Beautiful view of the city. Iloilo City is a very beautiful city. It is not as big as Cebu, however, it has its own unique beauty to it!
