Baclayon in the Beginning
« on: April 26, 2007, 06:03:31 AM »
Baclayon is in the eastern part of Bohol. It is the first municipality to be established in Bohol by the Spaniards and formerly comprised its present territory and those belonging now to Corella, Sikatuna, Alburquerque and Balilihan. This municipality was originally called Bacayan because travellers used to detour (bacay) around a rocky cliff along the shore about half kilometer from the municipal building in order to avoid going over the top of the cliff. The town was founded in 1595 by two Jesuit priests, Fr. Juan de Torres and Fr. Gabriel Sanchez who also built a stone church which is now considered as the oldest stone church in the country. In 1879, Baclayon had a population of 11,142.

According to my lolo who was alive in 1960 told me that the place was called Baclayon becuase "baclayon ra man namo nang lugara magbarter mig kamote ug asin, isda ug kinhason ". Ang taga Balilihan moagi sa Corella, magbaklay ra. So, the place was called Baclayon.
