Municipality of Dauis
Dauis is one of the two towns on the island of Panglao. It is only three kilometers from the capital and is one of the oldest municipalities of Bohol. In 1879, it had a population of 9,090. No record of its establishment exists because all municipal records were burned during the World War II. However, a stone church tower which was built near the present church bears the year 1774, which must have been the date of its construction. And also, the establishment of the parish according to church records, was in 1697. It is probable that the founding of the town was not far from that year. The old church was erected in 1863 and the convent in 1884.
