  • Miagao church is one of those you shouldn't missed to include in your selfie collections.... A UNESCO World Heritage site and a century old church. Must be visited when your in Miagao... 
  • Interesting but not cured so much the church.It's present a parking in front of it. All around shops and close to the location many resort. It's good for a 20 minutes break no more. 
  • This place is just picture perfect being a UNESCO world heritage site you shouldn't miss going here when in Iloilo. It does close down on lunchtime so make sure not to go there at around that time.
