San Joaquin Cemetery, Iloilo City

I'm back! Its been so long since my last blog. :)

We went to Iloilo City last April 2018. I really love to visit old town especially their old structures. One of the places we've been is the San Joaquin Cemetery. The San Joaquin Cemetery, or know as Campo Santo de San Joaquin, is located in San Joaquin, Southern Iloilo. And I was very amazed because it was preserved.

It was built during the Spanish-colonial period of the Philippines and was initiated by Fray Mariano Vamba in 1892, he was the last Augustinian parish priest in this town.

National Museum of the Philippines declared the San Joaquin Cemetery was declared a National Cultural Treasure in December 2015.

A heritage from the past...
