Sagbayan, officially the Municipality of Sagbayan (Cebuano: Munisipyo sa Sagbayan; Tagalog: Bayan ng Sagbayan), is a 4th class municipality in the province of Bohol, Philippines. According to the 2020 census, it has a population of 24,335 people. [3]

Sagbayan means "place for hanging", coming from the root word sagbay, which means "to hang" and referred to the practice of hanging deer hides on trees to dry after hunting expeditions.[5]

Its main attraction is Sagbayan Peak, a tourism site overlooking a scenic valley with an observation platform and children's playground.[6] While some similar hill formations are visible, it is not within the main Chocolate Hills area.

The town of Sagbayan, Bohol celebrates its feast on May 4/August 28, to honor the town patron San Agustin.[7]

History[edit]

Sagbayan was formerly part of the surrounding municipalities of Clarin, Inabanga, Carmen, and Catigbian. It was formed into a separate town by an Executive Order of President Elpidio Quirino on 9 February 1949, and named Borja,[8] in honor of Salustiano Borja, the first elected civil governor of the Province of Bohol.[5] It reverted to its original name in 1957.[9]

In October 2013, Sagbayan was close to the epicenter of a magnitude 7.2 earthquake. The town suffered 12 fatalities and damage to almost 1,000 homes, as well as total destruction of its town hall.[10]
