Eloisa Bridge, Alimodian, Iloilo

Some Alimodian Iloilo residents are working to save this remarkable old stone bridge as an important part of the town’s and Philippine heritage.  When one visits the municipality, one can’t help but be impressed with all the good work done by the Alimodian Heritage Conservation Society.

Underneath the modern highway lurks a rare Spanish stone bridge

Finding the Eloisa Bridge.  The main highway to Alimodian from the south crosses a small stream on a temporary “Bailey bridge”, more or less immediately before you reach the municipal building and the plaza.  The Eloisa bridge is under the steel bridge.  You have to make your way down quite steep river banks to actually get a look at the old bridge.  Be careful!
