Convento de Patnongon

Patnongon is a town in the Western parts of Antique, Iloilo's neighboring province. It once had a beautiful Roman Catholic church that was destroyed in the second world war. However, the old convent was spared and is now considered a National Historical Treasure.. This beautiful yellowish stone structure deviates from the usual 'Bahay na Bato' architecture because instead of squat windows, lofty terraces dominate the second level of the building. This feature is common in houses in Spain and Portugal.
