Title: The Churches of Iloilo Province
Post by: Lorenzo on August 18, 2011, 12:41:21 PM
The Provice of Iloilo was once one of Spain's leading Capitals in the Philippine Islands. Its highly colonized towns testify its rich history through their laudable historical destinations. The numerous collection of Churches, Mansions and Cemeteries departs Iloilo away from its asian terrain. Its magnificent splendor overlaps the ordinary. Churches with its distinct European and Latin American appeal will transport any tourist in an era centuries away from the present. Its stonewalled cemeteries may seduce any traveler to stop by and feel the essence of memories forgotten by time.

(http://i69.photobucket.com/albums/i62/Pacific_leopard/C3Nn0lNz3n.jpg)

Finished in 1834, the Neoclassic Church of Cabatuan is grand an example of a European basilica. This is the only extant Spanish church in Iloilo which has three facades. The Belfries are plain examples of Byzantine Architecture with  supporting Neoclassic essences. The Church is a beautiful of example of an Italian Medieval structure as proven by those small rectangular windows which contrasts the church's massive form.

The Church of Janiuay, is fine example of Spanish Neoclassicism. Ruined in the Second World War. Almost finished in 1871, the first level and the belfry of Janiuay church was made of red bricks while the second level was built of wood and light materials. It was said that the bricks from the ruined part of the church was used to construct the Japanese Landing Feild now the New Iloilo Airprt in the neighboring town of Cabatuan.

The appearance of Lambunao Church can be associated with colonial churches in Latin America. The Beautiful alternate movement brought by round columns and the curvilinear pediment each crowned by a baroque finial is a classic and positive distortion from Neoclassicism's plain features.

Santa Barbara Church: The Seat of Iloilo's Revolutionary Government

(http://74.52.155.21/~visitaig/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/sta-barbs-3-1024x682.jpg)

The Classic facade of Santa Barbara Church is a beautiful example of Baroque Renaissance Architecture. The exaggerated use of cornices created a three-layered effect on the facade. Baroque Finials dominate the church pediment. Archwindows with graceful curves gave the church few romanesque additions. The convent of Santa Barbara, is of Moorish designs, such designs were derived from Southern Spain's Moorish regions.

Mao ni ang simbahan sa ahong pinanggang baje kai taga Santa Barbara, Iloilo man ni siya. :)

The world famous church of Miagao has been referred as one of the Philippines' most remarkable tourist destinations. It is obviously true since the church is the best representation of genuine Filipino artistry, the facade of Miagao, the most ornate of its kind, is extremely decorated with curves and irregular movent, a design from the lines of the Rococo, Churrisguresque and Baroque. The church of Miagao is also noted for the belfries which are not symmetrical.
