Sandugo Festival

The annual event is held to commemorate a historical sign of friendship or treaty between the Spaniards and Filipinos called blood compact. This ancient ritual is notably recorded in Bohol where Spanish colonizers led by Captain Miguel Lopez De Legazpi and local Chieftain Datu Sikatuna sealed a friendly agreement in 1565 by drinking a cup of wine mixed with their blood.

In fact, a shrine has been built in Loay Town in Tagbilaran City in honor of this historical event with life-size images of Legazpi, Sikatuna and their men made of bronze.
