Nelly’s Garden: The Lopez Heritage House
A stately white mansion stands majestically at the far end of a sprawling property in the Jaro District of Iloilo City. Named after the eldest daughter of Don Vicente Lopez and Doña Elena Hofileña, the iconic mansion represents the former aristocracy, grandeur, and elegance of the old Iloilo society.
Very important people from the alta de sociedad socialized, dined, and partied in lavish fashion. The National Historical Institute declared the Lopez Heritage House as a national historical landmark on March 28, 2004.
