Being one of the three Angelicum Schools built in the 1970s, Angelicum School Iloilo easily eludes that ancestral vibe. What guests would easily notice upon entering the vicinity is the white and noble Lizares Mansion that is situated in an almost 2-hectare lot. It is a three-story heritage site that has a winding wooden staircase and grand bedrooms. More than just its impressive style and architecture, mystery lives in the mansion as it was believed to have become a torture chamber during the Japanese occupation. Locals and tourists flock to this establishment every December as it displays a magnificent show of lights.
