Rich History

Iligan City started from a village called Bayug found in about four kilometers from the new city center. The settlers of the town were mainly natives as well as sea-dwellers. When the 16th century arrived, changes also took place brought about by the coming of the migrants from the Visayas. In 1565, the expedition of Legazpi took place, bringing another series of changes in the area. Thus, the name “Iligan” was derived from the Higaonon word “ilijan,” which means “fortress of defense.”
