Duenas, Iloilo: Surprisingly Surprising

courtesy of : Pacific_leopard



The name Duenas is not an infriquent place in the Philippine folklore. It has been one the centers of eerie stories created by imaginative minds, thus giving the place an unlikely remark that may never interest a traveler. Ironically, the truth about Duenas is the antonym of the accounts written in folklore books. I may compare this tranquil Ilonggo town with Europe's Transylvania, a region believed to be the origin of an infamous mythical character. In reality, Transylvania is a rich religious place dominated by majestic Christian shrines, monasteries and temples. Like transylvania, Duenas is a victim of false perceptions, but the church of Duenas, perhaps one of the finest Baroque churches in the country, proves that this place is more than your usual expectations.
An extraordinary feeling Burgeoned me when I first saw the church. The belfries are yet the most extraordinary structures i had ever laid eyes on... It may be at par with Molo Church's, it may even outstrip them.. Then, I realized, they were the most beautiful belfries here in the Province of Iloilo... The architectural style is a tag of war between baroque and renaissance. a very fine retreat from its neoclassic facade. There is more of Duenas Church if one tries to explore every part of it... The central cupola of Duenas church is a secretive feature that may amaze a visitor...
I never thought such edifice like those one in Duenas existed in our Philippine soil, I never imagined that it was more beautiful than it was written on books and travelogues...




Dingle Church, Iloilo- hehe... A Basta may something-something sa church's belfry... budlay explain...

@spacewagon1 and @ pacific leopard: wow--those pics of Duenas (is there an ñ in there?) are great--the design shows such strength--very "masculine" architecture as opposed to Sta. Ana de Molo.

Duenas church looks very beautiful. It has a graceful dome and a symmetrical facade. Do you have interior pics?

What's left isn't as intricate is the other cemeteries in Iloilo.

Though what's left of the capilla is one of the largest.

The structure is hexagonal and roof is not-extant ...

I'll just leave the architectural descriptions to Pacific, hehe ... This is the Dingle Church

Inside is an ongoing rennovation of the roof ... It will look really nice when it's done, can't wait to visit it again.

Showing to you the beautiful church of Duenas ... another hidden gem in Iloilo that we'll be one of the first to promote.

@j_pol: I'm not totally sure with Rizal's monument in every town or municipality in Iloilo but it looks like all of them have it. Most of the towns I've visited in the past has a monument of Dr. Jose Rizal or I'm just simply assuming. Either way it's nice to be reminded with our national hero's feat and struggle. On whether it was on the decree to make one in honour of him, I don't know.

thanks wecky. as with all the other municipalities and cities in the philippines, there's always at least 1 monument of our national hero. i need to know if there was such a law passed by the congress or by the president years back. all i know is that there was this act 346. but i'm not sure what it is all about. again thanks.

My hometown Pavia has none. But the rest of the towns in Iloilo has one.

you're welcome, overtureph. I'll try to repost pics here from Iloilo Thread which pertains to history, culture and heritage. Iloilo prides itself with its accomplishments in the past that til the present stood proud to prove Iloilo's early civilisation and the role it played in Philippines' history and culture. Hope you'll enjoy looking at these photos courtesy of Chymera and Pacific_leopard.
