Title: Developing Tourism in Cortes, Bohol
Post by: Ligalig-Mike on November 14, 2007, 04:16:41 PM
When leaders set aside politics and focus instead for the overall welfare of their town, prosperity follows. In the town of Cortes, a united bond has produced bright prospects particularly in the field of tourism.

Mayor Jasmine Balistoy said the P25-million annual budget she had submitted for review to the Sangguniang Bayan was approved last Nov. 5 without hitches. She particularly mentioned the efforts of Vice Mayor Rodrigo Uy who have shown total support for the administration’s development agenda for the coming year 2008.

Topping the town’s major project is the development of the docking port which was formerly utilized as a yatch building site of the Ilaw ng Buhay Foundation.

The foundation had yielded their contract to the municipal government making it possible for its development as the entrance, starting point of the grandiose Abatan River Cruise project which covers five towns and promises added livelihood to many residents in the area.

“We have already initiated a resurvey in the area and an appropriation of about P500,000 is readied for the envisioned eco-tourism river cruise docking port,” Mayor Balistoy said.

The Bili-Bili Spring in Malayo Norte will also be developed as this will be the first stop of the tourism river cruise.

The mayor proudly revealed that the projects implemented in her town incurred no loans. She has now established day care center each for the 14 barangays and health stations will also be constructed.

The nine sources of water supply are now installed with automatic chlorinator injection system to insure the health of residents. For 2008, reserve submersible pumps will be purchased to have a ready replacement in case one of the pumping units bogs down.

A big water reservoir will also be constructed in barangay De la Paz.

In a separate interview, Vice Mayor Rodrigo Uy said he is comfortable working with Mayor Balistoy. He said, the mayor shares the same vision of making Cortes a prosperous town utilizing its tourism and economic potentials.

There seems to a a move for Sallvador residents to reclaim the lot which Ilaw ng Buhay Incorporated has rented from the barangay.

Ilaw enterted into a contract, and seemingly beleived it has successfully owned the lot already.

Now, Cortes local government officials need to confer with Barangay Salvador, lest they would be locking horns for a litigation that may prove to be a stumbling block to the dream tourism port.

Rumors has it that there was no public hearing in ceding the lot reclaimed by barangay residents so they could enlarge their IRA share.

Now, seemingly, the LGU has taken over and a legal tussle might be upcoming.

The probable loser might be the one funding the project.

Or the ones promising to the funders that it can be muscled that way

History of Cortes
The history of Cortes dates back to pre-hispanic times. They already had a form of government way before the coming of the Spaniards. The town was known as “Malabago” after its chief who was a cotemporary of Haring Lomod, otherwise known to many as Tamblot – the first Boholano to raise arms against the Spanish conquistadors.

The Malabago settlement was situated in the upland territory of the present day Cortes near the Abatan River while that of Tamblot was at Barangay Viga in the lowlands of Antequera which stretches to the riverside valleys opposite that of Malabago beyond the present day Abatan Bridge.

Tamblot’s reign started in early 1600 A.D. and the uprising in 1621 was triggered when a Spanish priest want to take back a silver church bell (Lingganayng Ugis) which he gave to Tamblot in order to put it up in a church he built at Malabago. Tamblot resented such a move; refused to give the bell back and so the feud between him and the Spaniards started.

So the Malabago settlement dates back to as far as early 1600 A.D. The people of Malabago have a culture of their own and recorded their day-to-day activities in their own writing using unique characters which they carved out on a piece of bamboo using a knife called panggi or supok.

Malabago then was a sanctuary of hardy farmers who cultivated the land and made rice paddies in the north and east lowlands. By then, it was being served by priests from Maribojoc town. Supporting Tamblot during the uprising, the Spaniards destroyed the settlement in 1621.

The settlement was transferred to Bahian which was also destroyed by the Spaniards. Again the people settled at Ylaya at the upper part of the river. Not accessible by boats, the people have to berth near the mouth of the river which they eventually called as “Dayhangan”, meaning “berthing place”.

The people who choose to live near the mouth of the river and along the swamps grew. Their main livelihood was to catch fish so the new settlement was called “Pamingwitan” or a place where one can catch fish using a fishing rod. Way back in 1793 or 94, the independent parish was established.

Finding it hard to pronounce the name of “Pamingwitan”, the town was re-named Cortes, after the Spanish conquistador, Hernan Cortes. Some said it was named after Cortes, a town in Navarre of Northern Spain.

The town was probably established in 1862 during the construction of the Catholic Church wherein the settlements of Malabago, Pamingwitan and Dayhangan where welded into one and called the “Pueblo de Cortes” derived from the Spanish word “cortesimo” meaning “most courteous”.

The parish was dedicated to the Santo Niño. The inhabitants of the town were baptized and given instructions in the Catholic faith. Although the church was built way back in 1880, the bell towers’ upper register was completed only in the 20th century. A boy’s school building was constructed in 1895.

The town of Cortes played a prominent role during World War II. The inhabitants of the town formed a bolo battalion to fight the Japanese Invaders. Yet in 1942, the town was overwhelmed by the Japanese; houses were burned down and the school building was occupied and used as a garrison.

Cortes was liberated from the Japanese a few days after the arrival of the Americans in Tagbilaran on April 11, 1945. In less than a month, the whole province of Bohol was officially declared liberated on May 25, 1945 by Major General William H. Arnold, Commander of the American Division

As reported on local papers, a play based on Cortes' history will be mounted, with the mayor herself essaying the lead female role.

A group of Boholanos & Cebuanos headed by a Cortesanon are planning to build a golf course in Cortes.

Title: Re: Developing Tourism in Cortes, Bohol
Post by: Koddi Prudente on July 08, 2010, 12:53:50 AM

Bag-o pa gi-launch and Abatan River Community Life Tour. The tour starts at the marina in Salvador, Cortes and ends in Catigbian. The cost is P1,100 per person. It is quite a long tour and could be boring. The management scheme is also confusing according to a consultant, because it involves communities of Cortes, Maribojoc, Antequera, Balilihan and Catigbian.
