Last April 11, 2020, Facebook user Marion Carlet Pascasio shared her artworks about Iloilo City. According to the post, she was inspired to paint these after seeing the positive comments and praises for the City of Love all over social media.
Although Marion is not a resident of Iloilo City (she lives in the province), according to her, she is still proud that we Ilonggos are now being recognized for our resilience and decisiveness in dealing with this crisis. Her inspiration is the city where there are aesthetic backdrops everywhere you go.
Take a look at the pieces:
Calle Real (Royal Street in Spanish), is a historic street located in the old downtown district Iloilo City. “Escolta of Iloilo” is the common reference of the street. This is where you can find several fine examples of historic luxury American era neoclassical, beaux-arts, and art deco buildings.
Festive Walk Parade
Festive Walk Parade the longest retail and dining strip in the whole Visayas and Mindanao. It is a 1.1 kilometer Street of Festive Walk showcasing international restaurants, bistros and pubs. This is definitely the place where you can experience redefined nightlife and leisure.
Drilon Bridge is one of the bridges that cross the Iloilo River. This is going to La Paz district and a shorter road to take when you plan to go to Bacolod via fast-craft vessels.
Iloilo City takes pride of its another attraction during summer. It is the blooming rosy trumpet trees or Tabebuia Rosea along Diversion Road. Take a lot of photos at the bike and walk lanes and service road components situated at the right portion of the road when travelling from General Luna.
There are just few places you can definitely check out first when you are in Iloilo City. For sure, Marion will be doing some more watercolor pieces in the future!
What is your favorite spot in the city?
