The Jaro Cathedral. Commissioned in 1874, seat of the Archbisporic of Western Visayas.
The Jaro Belfry. Destr0yed in the 1948 earthquake but is now restored. It is one of the few belfries in the Philippines that is separate from the main church building.

Our Lady of Candles. Said to be miraculous, her Feast Day is on February 2.

Detail. One of the chandeliers that line the nave.
