Home to Ilonggos, known as the ‘sweetest people’ with its ‘sing-song’ dialect, Iloilo showcases both our glorious history and culture and the rapid development of a bustling metropolis.
A visit to Iloilo will bring you back into memory lane, with its old mansions, museums and buildings, particularly in Calle Real, the City’s old business district.
Iloilo is home to the world-famous Dinagyang Festival, adjudged consistently as the best tourism event in the Philippines. Started in 1969, Dinagyang is Iloilo’s version of the At-Atihan Festival, with its impressive choreography and spectacular costumes that keep spectators in awe. Dinagyang is held every January in honor of the Sr. Sto. Nino.
Iloilo is also a food haven. A visit to Iloilo is never complete without tasting the famous La Paz Batchoy and Pancit Molo. Of course, pasalubong such as barquillos and biscocho are must-buys, too.
Fiesta Souvenirs truly capture the rich heritage of Iloilo!
