"Jaro District of Iloilo City" Jaro by cyndymc

Jaro Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 11 photos

Seat of Catholicism in Western Visayas

Jaro District is only 3 kms. away from the Iloilo City Proper. It is the seat of Jaro Diocese covering Western Visayas. It is also known for the old colonial houses of Iloilo sugar barons and the Hispano-Filipino houses of the society’s elite. I looked forward to seeing them so I could make a comparison with their counterparts in Negros Occidental, but unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go around. I got to see only the Jaro Cathedral, belfry and plaza.
