Neoclassic in Iloilo

The UP Iloilo College main building is one of the University of the Philippines' heritage buildings. It used to be the Iloilo City Hall until 1949 when the city donated it to the university. It is a fine example of American Neoclassic.

Note the classic sculptures on the entrance that support the university seal.

The two sculptures representing the Civil Authority were made by Italian sculptor Francisco Monti who was also a professor at the University of Santo Tomas
