Lila

Municipality of Lila

Lila is a town on the southern coast of Bohol, twenty-eight and a half kilometers from Tagbilaran. It lies between Loay and Dimiao and for a time was a part of the latter municipality. There is no record to show the date of its establishment during the Spanish regime, but according to the account of the Agustinian mission in Bohol, it was a separate municipality in 1879, with a population of 4,023. When it was annexed to Dimiao, is not known because all records have been burned. However, it was on January 1, 1915 when it was separated from Dimiao and made an independent municipality.

During World War II, the Japanese caused untold sufferings to the people of the town. Many civilians were maltreated and tortured. It is said that some thirty-one civilians were killed by the Japanese.
