Heritage Conservation Summit 2014 in Iloilo City
Belle Piccio | Aug 08, 2014
Founded by concerned Ilonggo citizens in November 2011, the Iloilo Cultural Heritage Foundation Inc. (ICHFI) was formed to restore the heritage buildings at Calle Real and other nearby avenues.
These ancestral and vintage structures built in the 1920s to 1930s are the remainder of Iloilo’s glorious past.
Calle Real de Iloilo is Iloilo’s heritage treasure not just for the Ilonggos but for the entire Philippines too. It shows the grandeur past of Filipinos!
