Passed by Plaza Molo several times but I have never heard about this mansion – until it’s unveiling. True enough, that there are treasures existing in plain sight. Whoever decided to restore this old mansion must have seen what the ‘usual’ eyes have not – that behind ailing walls, rusty steel windows, and the ‘oldness’ of it all, there’s a priceless gem that precisely represents Ilonggo heritage. The Yusay-Consing Mansion (Molo Mansion) is located at Molo, Iloilo City – fronting the magnificent Molo Plaza and St. Anne Parish Church. It was built in the 1920s and has been home to Molo’s powerful and influential families. With its preservation, it is now a heritage museum housing products, delicacies, art and crafts by Ilonggos.
