San Jose Parish Placer, Iloilo City

The San Jose Parish Placer (in Spanish: Parroquia de San Jose Placer, Ciudad de Iloilo) is located at Plaza Libertad, Iloilo City. It’s just a few meters from the Iloilo City Hall and is in front of the Statue of Jose Rizal in Plaza Libertad.

Masses at the San Jose Parish Placer is offered in English and Ilonggo, the local dialect in Iloilo. There are also novenas and other devotions in the church for Sta. Rita (Monday), St. Joseph (Tuesday), Mother of Perpetual Help (Wednesday), Our Lady of Consolation and Cincture (Thursday) and Sto. Nino de Cebu (Friday).

I can’t find the marker of the church, but according to the website Philippine Churches, the San Jose Parish Place in Plaza Libertad, Iloilo City was established in 1768 and has a feast day of March 19. What makes the San Jose Parish Placer unique is the maroon color of the church and Corinthian columns inside the church.

Some of the old houses along Sto. Rosario St., Iloilo City. Most illustrados (rich Filipinos during the Spanish era) are located near the church like these houses.

I’m guessing this is written in Ilonggo, the local dialect of Iloilo.

The tiles used on the flooring of the San Jose Parish Placer is very interesting.
