• Iloilo City street declared heritage zone


    Iloilo City: The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) has officially declared the famed Calle Real located in the heart of this city as a heritage zone and historical landmark. NHCP Chairperson Dr. Serena Diokno said Calle Real joins Silay City in Negros Occidental as the only two declared heritage zones in the Visayas. Dubbed as the jewel of Iloilo City and district cultural heritage site, Calle Real is a great reminder that the Ilonggos are keepers of their forefather’s legacy. An unveiling of the marker on August 8, 2015 marked the declaration of the CBD as the “Distrito Pangkomersyo ng Lungsod ng Iloilo Bilang Pook Pamana.”
