Netong's (Atria) | Things to do in Iloilo City-Iloilo

The façade of the church, telling of the neogothic influence, already gives travelers a preview of the rich history of the building. The church was raised in 1831, under the supervision of Father Pablo Montaño, and was completed under the direction of Don Jose Manuel Locsin.
Coral stones, as well as the two red pyramidal spires, show how the so called Feminist Church has aged with glory. It is easy to reach the area as almost all jeepney routes with “Molo” or “Arevalo” on the signage will pass by the plaza. Inside the church, one can find the centerpiece that holds the image of the patron saint, St. Anne, and the 16 statues of female saints along the aisle.
Right across the town church is the grand Molo Mansion built in the 1920s. To save the structure from deteriorating, it has been restored and turned into a heritage museum. It now houses crafts and arts by the Ilonggos, and tourists can conveniently shop at a cultural retail store by the lobby.
At the backyard, one could find a sweet spot for sweet organic treats! Table Matters sell artisanal ice cream made from blue ternate and also a variety of coolers—a perfect break from touring around the district of Molo.
A Batchoy foodtrip in Iloilo wouldn't be complete without a visit to Lars Buko Batchoy near the Mandurriao Public Market. While a bowl of this soup usually tastes really sinful (with all the fatty but succulent components in it), this diner offers a fresher, lighter take on the Ilonggo favorite. Served in a coconut shell, the broth tastes sweet without being overpowering. It complements well with its perennial partner, the Puto Manapla. Other bestsellers on their menu include the Buko Pancit Molo, Buko Lomi, and Buko Burger.
