La Paz is one of the seven districts of Iloilo City, in the Philippine, on the island of Panay, in Western Visayas. It was formerly known as Ilawod or "sea/wet land" together with Jaro which was referred to as Ilaya or "mountain/dry land".
Before it became a district of Iloilo City, La Paz was at different times a separate town and a part of Jaro City, now the district of Jaro.
Its name, which translates from Spanish as "peace", is derived from its patron saint, Nuestra Señora de la Paz y Buen Viaje in Spanish; in English Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.
La Paz Batchoy is dish named after the district.
