MUNICIPALITY OF DANAO

This municipality was once the birthplace of the famed Boholano leader, Francisco Dagohoy. It was the place where he established his independent government and it also became a concentration camp for World War II prisoners during the Japanese occupation.

 
It used to be a barrio of Talibon but it turned into a municipality by an Executive Order issued on March 16, 1961 by then Pres. Carlos P. Garcia. It was inaugurated as an independent municipality in July 9, 1961.
