Jaro Cathedral - Iloilo Attractions

Jaro Cathedral

Jaro Cathedral is one of the 18th century structures remaining in Iloilo. Annually, thousands of pilgrims troop to Jaro Cathedral for the feast of Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria or Our Lady of Candles, patroness of Western Visayas. Catholic devotees believe that tha Madonna and Child icon seen at the Church's veranda is miraculous. Over the years, it is believed that the image grows in size.


Jaro Cathedral features 2 rows of almost-life sized statues of male saints attached to massive stone columns with the statues of St. Peter and St. Paul nearest to the altar.
