Iloilo Images: Muelle Loney

The statue of Englishman Nicholas Loney, the so-called Father of the Philippine Sugar Industry, is one of the first sights travellers will see as they disembark in Iloilo's Muelle Loney with the Aduana or Old Customs House standing in the background.

Strategically situated at the mouth of the Iloilo River, the majestic Aduana building has been spruced up by the government recently. It is still being used by the Bureau of Customs today.

great picture. It reminds me of the trips I took every summer to this great place to spend time with my grandparents. It's the first structure I frist see when the ferry approached the dock.

Thanks and keep on posting.

is Sen. Drilon's socialized housing built in this Barangay? Maybe you can help me locate that village - it's not google-able. Thanks!
