There are also quite a number of heritage houses from colonial era existing in the city up to this date. Some of them are now considered as historical landmark such as the Mansion de Lopez and the Molo Mansion.


Meanwhile, Molo Church is one of the popular century-old churches in the country that you can also find in Iloilo.
