Barili, officially the Municipality of Barili, (Cebuano: Lungsod sa Barili; Tagalog: Bayan ng Barili), is a 2nd class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 73,862 people.[3]

Barili is bordered to the north by the town of Aloguinsan, to the west is the Tañon Strait, to the east is the city of Carcar and the town of Sibonga, and to the south is the town of Dumanjug.

History[edit]

The word barili comes from the name of a local grass called balili. The municipality was founded in 1632, though the parish of Barili was established in 1614. A cross was erected by conquistadores on their arrival at 1602, and still exists today.

It was in Barili that the Japanese forces captured Chief Justice Jose Abad Santos while on his way to Toledo as his escape route to Negros.

In 2006, the town became the first municipality in Cebu province to give protections to its heritage sites through Municipal Ordinance No. 04-06-01, s. 2006, declaring certain shrines, houses, buildings, monuments, markers and other areas as cultural properties of the municipality.
