Bohol Blood Compact : Bohol Islands PhilippinesBohol is renowned as the site of the historic “Blood Compact’ of March 15, 1565 between the Filipino native leader Sikatuna and the Spanish adventurer, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi. Every year, the compact between the Muslim chief and the Spanish conqueror is celebrated through the Sandugo Festival in June. Bohol was the arena of the Dagohoy and Tamblot rebellions against Spain. Dagohoy led the longest rebellion in Philippine history which lasted for 85 years. The Boholanos also fought bravely against the Americans. In the town of Jagna, a structure was erected to commemorate one of the bloody encounters between the Filipinos and the Americans.

Bohol was officially declared a province under Republic Act 2711 on March 10, 1917.
