    -Molo Church (St. Anne Parish Church): probably the second most visually appealing Church in Iloilo Province after Miag-ao Church
    -Built in 1860's and has gone through its first renovation in 1870 adding Gothic and Romanesque elements
    -The pyramidal structures (spires) on the top of the church in bright red color are stunning specially when hit by the lights coming from the sun
    -Located in Molo District, Iloilo Province
    -Exterior is already a big surprise but wait until you see the interior

    Convento de Molo 1 more image

    As I sat on a bench at the Molo Plaza, I noticed a Hispanic style old structure with the name Convento de Molo. Curious, I approached it and saw a historical marker on the corner of the building. Hoping to learn more about the building, I was surprised that the marker was not about the convent, but about a local revolutionary, Pablo Araneta y Soriano. I wonder why the marker was about him and not the convent. Could he have used the convent during the revolution? I will find out when I return to Iloilo City next year and update the info.

    I met a student nurse staying in the dormitory of One Lourdes Dormitel. Her family hails from Molo. I learned something very interesting from her. As mentioned in my tip about Molo Church, coral stones and limestones were used in building the structure. I learned that egg whites were used as binder instead of cement. The egg yolks were not discarded but used in baking biscuits and other "pasalubong" items. This was supposedly practiced by the people behind Panaderia de Molo, who, for the past more than 130 years, have been baking broas, barquillos, galletas, and other famous Iloilo. These have become popular Iloilo "pasalubong" items aside from the biscocho of Biscocho Haus.
