There is so much to like about Alimodian, a small municipality in Iloilo Province. Alimodian is only about twenty-five kilometers from Iloilo City, Alimodian is really a world apart, a pretty quiet town with an almost alpine feel.

Most everything in Alimodian is well maintained, the streets and plaza free from litter, showing that the residents have pride in their community. Alimodian’s old stone Spanish Church and plaza are the centerpieces. A rare Spanish era stone arched bridge is fighting for survival.
