Introduction

The island province of Bohol, or “Bo-ol”, its original name, lies in the heart of the Visayas. Northwest of Bohol is the province of Cebu; Leyte is on the northeast and on the south is the Mindanao Sea. The terrain of the main island is rolling and hilly. Towards the interior is a plateau dotted with numerous “haycock” hills, popularly known as the “Chocolate Hills,” a main tourist attraction.

Its total land area is 411,726 hectares divided into 47 towns and 1 city. Tagbilaran, its capital, consists of 15 barangays. Bohol has 1,114 barangays and three congressio­nal districts. It is a first class province.

Bohol Blood Compact : Bohol Islands PhilippinesBohol is renowned as the site of the historic “Blood Compact’ of March 15, 1565 between the Filipino native leader Sikatuna and the Spanish adventurer, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. Every year, the compact between the Muslim chief and the Spanish conqueror is celebrated through the Sandugo Festival in June. Bohol was the arena of the Dagohoy and Tamblot rebellions against Spain. Dagohoy led the longest rebellion in Philippine history which lasted for 85 years. The Boholanos also fought bravely against the Americans. In the town of Jagna, a structure was erected to commemorate one of the bloody encounters between the Filipinos and the Americans.

Bohol was officially declared a province under Republic Act 2711 on March 10, 1917.

Desserts Food, Philippine Cuisine

As a tropical oriental country it should come as no surprise there are many treats made from rice and coconuts. One often seen dessert is bibingka, a hot rice cake optionally topped with a pat of butter, slices of kesong puti (white cheese), itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs), and sometimes grated coconut. There are also glutinous rice sweets called biko made with sugar, butter, and coconut milk.
