Miag-ao: Miag-ao Church

From the Molo Bus Terminal in Iloilo City, we took a van bound for San Jose, Antique. After almost an hour of waiting, the van was finally full and ready to leave Iloilo City at 11:00am. It was a smooth ride along the Iloilo-Antique Road (National Highway), passing through sleepy towns of southern Iloilo, with occasional view of the Panay Gulf to the left. We reached the town of Miag-ao at around 12:00 noon. We had a quick lunch at a local cafeteria and went to Miag-ao Church immediately after.

Miag-ao Church, officially called Church of Santo Tomas de Villanueva, was built in the late 1700's and was included in the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites as one of the four Baroque Churches of the Philippines in 1993.
