Second World War
In 1942 the Japanese Imperial forces captured and occupied the town of Toledo.
In 1945 local Filipino forces of the Philippine Commonwealth Army from the 8th, 81st, 82nd, 83rd, 85th and 86th Infantry Division aided by Cebuano guerrilla resistance fighters, battled against the Japanese Imperial forces and liberated the town of Toledo.
Toledo City (1960-present)
Toledo also became a chartered city in 19 June 1960 under Republic Act No. 2688.
Although not as progressive as Cebu's other cities, it is unique in that it is the only city in the province on the western seaboard facing Negros Oriental – and therefore strategically located. (Danao, Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu, Cebu City, Talisay, Naga, and Carcar are on the east. One more city, Bogo City, is in the north, on the eastern side.)
Shrine of Saint Pedro Calungsod
Following the canonization on 21 October 2012 of Visayan teen martyr Pedro Calungsod (1672), the hilltop parish of Cantabaco became the first shrine and church named after the second Filipino saint.
Toledo City comprises 38 barangays:
|072251016||Don Andres Soriano (Lutopan)||7.5%||12,764||15,333||−3.43%|
|072251024||Gen. Climaco (Malubog)||3.7%||6,337||5,521||2.66%|
