Municipality of Maribojoc

Situated in the southwestern coast of Bohol is the municipality of Maribojoc. It was probably named after the pinelike tree (Agoho), the leaves of which look like hairs. This tree is locally known as “maribojoc”. But the original name of the municipality is said to be Dungguan, which means “a place of anchorage”. It was an appropriate name because the town is on a little cove which is fairly sheltered from strong winds. Maribojoc was declared a parish in 1767. It became a regular municipality on October 15,1860. In 1879, it was a thriving town with a population of 18,200.
