Situated in the high-altitude town of Magtangtang, Danao in Bohol, the Francisco Dagohoy Historical Park serves as a remembrance of the heroism of Francisco Dagohoy, who led the island of Bohol to a successful rebellion. In 1744 to 1829, the Filipino patriot established an independent government on this site, which is between the towns of Inabanga and Talibon. Francisco Dagohoy holds the distinction of having led the longest revolt in Philippines history.
Born as Francisco Sendrijas in Inabanga, Bohol, information of the origin of Dagohoy is limited. He became a Barangay Captain in one of the towns of Bohol before his rebellion against the Spanish colonial government took into action.
Dagohoy came from the Visayan phrase, Dagon sa huyuhoy or talisman (a trinket or piece of jewellery thought to be a protection against evil) of the breeze in English.
Francisco Dagohoy’s 85-year revolt is a big part of the Philippines’ history. The local government unit, headed by Congressman Aumentado and Municipal Mayor Cepedoza, built the historical park in Magtangtang, Danao to remember the patriotism of Dagohoy.
If you are planning to visit the EAT Danao Adventure, you will surely pass by this Francisco Dagohoy Historical Park. You can take photos but not the flowers that beautify the place.
