Molo Plaza now restored to its full regalia
After months of anticipation, the old Molo Plaza, seemed neglected for generations, is now restored to its old grandeur. The pathways are now new, the statues at the gazebo are back, and the trees have been trimmed. The beautiful St Anne Church can now be seen in full, without the trees blocking the view. At night, magnificent lights enliven the plaza. But most important of all, the people of Molo and Iloilo City can truly enjoy the fruits of the city government’s commitment to conserve and restore our heritage.
The historic Molo Plaza is now again open for everyone. Take your time in admiring the architecture of the Neo-Gothic Molo church and gazebo, enjoy at the restored playground, or stroll and jog at the smooth pathways.
With the excellent outcome of the rehabilitation of the Molo Plaza, we’re now looking that these efforts be replicated at other plazas in the city – Plaza Libertad, Mandurriao Plaza, La Paz Plaza and Jaro Plaza.
