Alburquerque is a 5th class municipality in the province of
Bohol, Philippines. According to the 2007 census, it has a
population of 9,644 people. The town's short name is "Albur".
Alburquerque is reputed to have one of the longest (23
feet or 7 meters as of 2005) and heaviest (300 kg or 660
lbs) python in captivity. The python named Prony is
Albur's star and has known to the people as "Live
Anaconda of Bohol." Prony, a female python is owned by
Mr. Sofronio Salibay. Prony captured the attention of
media network GMA 7 who filmed the feeding. According to
JingJing Salibay, the lady caretaker, Prony ate cats
dogs which should be clean and free of bruises. This
"illegal" kind of feeding according to animal welfare
rights activists caught the attention of Animal Kingdom
and ordered the caretaker to stop feeding Prony with
dogs. Animal Kingdom also donated money to raise a
sanctuary. ABS-CBN and other media networks, newspapers
and magazines have featured Prony. In March 2006, Kapuso
Mo, Jessica Soho's stringer Leo Udtohan went to Albur to
film Prony as an important element whereas snakes of its
kind became a popular "dish" in other parts of the
During the Spanish era, the way to travel around Bohol was by
sea. Many coastal areas with a sheltered cove or harbor became
progressive settlements. Among them was a place called "Lo-oc",
Baclayon. As the name implies, it was a sheltered cove good for
berthing seacrafts. It was also the breeding place of the
"Bulinaw" or anchovie. Since Lo-oc, Baclayon was relatively far
from the Poblacion, the people had difficulty in attending Holy
Mass during Sundays. To solve the problem, the people thought of
the idea of constructing their own chapel and let a priest from
Baclayon come to serve the people. Lady Mariona Irag, a
prominent lady in the community took the mantle of leadership.
In 1842, she requested the parish priest of Baclayon, Fr. Pedro
de la Encarnacion, to supervise the construction of the chapel
to be built by the people.
The first kapitan of the place was Pedro Jala who lived in the
sitio of Carnago and the leader of Segunto. Carnago, a barrio
separated from the town. It's name was changed to Sikatuna, in
honor of the brave chieftain, Sikatuna, who made a blood compact
with Spanish Conquistador, Miguel Lopez de Legaspi.
On June 9, 1868, Gov. General Jose de la Gandara, issued the
decree establishing the new town of Alburquerque in its civil
jurisdiction. On November 14, 1868, the Fr. Provincial of the
Recollects approved the creation of the town as to its religious
jurisdiction. On June 18, 1869, the Bishop of Cebu in which
Bohol was a part of the Diocese, made Alburquerque a separate
Diocesan parish. It was advocated to Sta. Monica.
On June 26, 1869 Fr. Tomas Hernandez assumed his post as the
first curate Priest of Alburquerque.
This town was formerly called "Sagunto", but according to the
research of Engr. Jess Tirol in Manila, this town was called
"Segunto". Local folklore say that Alburquerque was in honor of
Alfonso Alburquerque, the famous Portuguese seafarer and
conqueror of Malaca, Sumatra. The name Alburquerque (from either
albus querqus, meaning "white evergreen" in Latin; or
Abu-al-Qurq, meaning "country of cork oaks" in Arabic) is very
widespread in all of the Americas and the Philippines.
Alburquerque is also a name of a town in the province of
Badajoz, region of Extremadura, Spain. There is also a place
called Albuquerque in the ancient town of Mexico, once a colony
of Spain for several years.
Since then, Segunto was changed to Alburquerque and its
inhabitants are called Alburanons, (Alburquerqueños in

The municipality of Alburquerque covers an area of 28.93 km² or
0.77% of Bohol’s mainland area. It is composed of eleven (11)
barangays, from which 5 are located along the coast and 6
inland. The road network shown in Figure 1, is not updated. The
central part of municipality, from the east extending toward
northwest is characterized by rolling to moderately steep
terrain (18-30% slope), with ground elevation ranging from 80 to
131 m amsl. The area in northeastern and southwestern part is
characterized by steep terrain (30–50% slope), with ground
elevation up to 153 m amsl. The southeastern part is
characterized with undulating to rolling terrain (8–18% slope)
with ground elevation up to 60 m amsl. The area along the coast
is characterized by level to nearly level terrain (0-3% slope),
with ground elevation ranging from zero near the coast to 10 m
amsl inland. Alburquerque municipality is covered by Hydrosol
and three (3) sorts of clay namely, Faraon, Bolinao and Lugo
clay. The northern portion of municipality is covered mostly by
Lugo clay, the southern half portion is mostly covered by Faraon
and Bolinao clay, while Hydrosol has a very limited extent along
the coast. For more detailed description of different types of
soils refer to Appendix 2. The municipal area is covered by
grassland, coconut, shrubs and built-up area. The northern
portion is mostly covered with grass, with exception of small
area in the northeast, which is covered with shrubs. The
southern portion along the coast is covered with coconut, with a
small built-up area in the west. The whole Bohol is in the
Corona's climate type IV, characterized by evenly distributed
rainfall over the year. The average annual rainfall is estimated
to 1,627 mm/yr. The average annual rainfall is the sum of the
average annual rainfall from respective river basin, multiplied
with percentage of respective municipal area within respective
Population and water demand projections
The population projection is based on 1995 NSO census and the
population growth rate from NEDA’s population projection
1980-2030, medium assumption, for every 5 years for urban and
rural barangays (for details refer to Table 5.4 in the Report on
Physiographic & Socio-Economic Conditions in the Bohol
The 1998 population is estimated to 7,924 (274/km²), which is
projected to increase to 7,948 (275/km²) in 2030.
Urban population in 1998 is estimated to 2,888 (36.44% of
total). It is projected to increase to 3,861 (48.58% of total)
by year 2030. The urban population is located in three barangays
namely, East and West Poblacion and Ponong.
The rural population in 1998 is estimated to 5,036 (63.55% of
total), which is projected to decrease to 4,087 (51.42% of
total) by year 2030.
The potable water demand, including domestic, industrial,
institutional and commercial water demands of urban and rural
population, is estimated in 1998 to 926 m³/d, which is projected
to increase to 1,529 m³/d in 2030. Majority of this water demand
(67.4%) in 2030 is for urban population.
The water demand estimated to 65 m³/d, is required to irrigate
0.015 km² of land, located in 1 irrigation system in barangay
Rivers and river basins
Several small rivers and creeks, which have their headwaters in
the elevated terrain in the northern part, traverse the
Alburquerque municipality. These rivers and creeks flow in
generally north to south direction and drain the major part of
municipality into Bohol Sea. The only major river basin is the
Tagbuane RB situated on the eastern part of Alburquerque (19.94
km² or 94.64% of municipal area). The municipality of
Albuquerque has a poorly developed drainage system, due to
presence of permeable limestone, which covers most of municipal
area and enables infiltration of large portion of effective
rainfall into underground. This is characteristic for karstified
limestone terrain. Surface water runoff (estimated to 304 mm/yr.
per km²), is estimated to 24,100 m³/d on the average. The
surface runoff is sufficient to satisfy the water demand of 65
m³/d for irrigation purposes.
The municipality of Alburquerque, 12 kilometers away from
Tagbilaran City is a fifth class agricultural locale with an
area of about 2,865 hectares, sheltering almost 9,000
inhabitants. The town has natural wonders and micro local
industries like the making of calamay, traditional method of
manufacturing pottery, and the weaving of raffia using locally
made loom. These are just some of the enriching legacies of old
time which are being preserved by the Alburanons. With these
native industries that evolved from industrious residents with
the indigenous materials in the surroundings, Alburquerque is
considered as one of the progressive coastal towns in the
province of Bohol. Exotic marine sites fascinating upland view
are in place to capture nature lover’s profound interest in
creation. Unspoiled setting of landscape and seascape would
bring one to whimsical atmosphere one has ever fantasized. The
Local Government Unit of Alburquerque welcomes and invites
everybody to take a sensation on the grandeur of tangible
Municipal Marine Sanctuary
The Municipal Marine Sanctuary, established on October 8, 2000
at barangay Sta. Felomina where the beach and the Mangrove
Protected Area are located, is being given utmost concern by the
Local Government Unit. The sanctuary had been set up in the area
selected to be fit for the purpose due to its coral cover. Few
months in existence prove to be beneficial to marine ecology and
to the community as well. Fish stocks rise and corals started to
live up again from the destruction done by illegal fishers.
Bamboo rafts has been put in place for the curious observers to
set on board for a closer view to marine ecology. It has been
considered as a dive site of the municipality for local and
foreign tourist visiting the place. In the capacious, sandy,
white beach, one can refresh in crystal, blue waters in the area
with cottages for rent and verdant, lush mangrove area. To
satisfy one’s longing for mother nature in the area, trekking up
to Tagbuane River passing through a Forestal Reserve Zone and an
abode to other nature’s winged and feathered creature is an
added enticement to lissome nature lovers.
Just a few hundred meters is a Python sanctum which is 5 years
old in existence with a length of approximately 23 feet (7.0 m)
and an estimated weight of about 300 kg. The biggest python in
captivity ever known. Named after its captor, Prony, it loves to
eat during feeding time. The winding barangay road leading to
the sanctuary and the majestic sights along the course keeps one
feel the prime of nature.
The Animal Kingdom Federation, Inc. (AKFI), an SEC registered,
non-profit and non-stock animal welfare organization registered
with the Animal Welfare Division of the Bureau of Animal
Industry recently vowed to build an animal sanctuary here. The
AKFI made this commitment after hearing reports on the 23-foot
(7.0 m) long python locally called baksan, owned by Sofronio
Salibay in Barangay Sta. Filomena, has been fed with stray dogs.
The python has caught the attention of many local and foreign
tourists, not only for its size but particularly on how it has
been fed. It even caught the attention of GMA 7 who sent a crew
to document the procedure. Feeding is done during full moon.
Alarmed by the reports, AKFI requested Mayor Efren Tungol to
stop Salibay from feeding the python with dogs since it is a
clear violation of Republic Act No. 8485, otherwise known as the
Animal Welfare Act. The Mayor agreed. However, in order to
preserve the python, which has become a tourist attraction,
AKFI, represented by its Director Charles Wartenberg, sealed a
memorandum of support and cooperation with the municipality
creating the site as an animal sanctuary. The memorandum, aside
from manifesting full implementation of RA 8485, also reiterates
the improvement of the cage based on animal welfare standards
and introduction of alternative feeding. Creating an animal
sanctuary would make Albur the only Animal Welfare Friendly
Municipality in the country. AKFI is also associated with the
International Wildlife Coalition Trust (IWCT), an
internationally recognized organization founded in the United
States dedicated to the protection of global wildlife and
natural habitat protection.
Church and convent
Creation of the parish
Some sources say the parish had its beginning as a visita in
1842 when a chapel was built under the direction of the parish
priest of Baclayon. The parish advocated to Santa Monica was
canonically established on June 18, 1869, following royal
approval given on November 1868. During the Spanish colonial
era, the Augustinian Recollect friars administered the parish.
Creation of the church
Up to the 1880s, the parish church was more like a huge shed.
Although it boasted of three aisles, its walls were only of
tabique. The present church of coral stone was commenced shortly
afterwards, utilizing the same three-aisled plan. However, the
upper portions, especially the tower over the facade, were
completed during the first half of this century. Upon closer
examination, it becomes clear that the link between the church
and the casa parroquial was planned along a grander scale, but
never finished. The grotto at the back of the courtyard between
the two structures hides a ruin which may be of another
Ray Francia signed the church's interior ceiling painting on one
side of the choir loft. Another section, now vanished, showed
that the painting was carried out from April 12 to August 3,
1932. As regards the church bells, amongst them in the
quadrangular tower are three bells, inscribed with the patron
saints of the parish (Santa Monica, San Agustin, and "Calipay"
or Joy). Dated 1866, two years before the ecclesiastical
recognition of the parish, the bells are mute testimonies to the
anxiety of the community in becoming an independent parish.
As to the casa parroquial, the year 1876 is etched over the
porta maior. However, in the center of the entrance arches to
the steps, the year 1884 could be read until recently.
On March 5, 2004, Mrs. Leila M. Café, Municipal Planning &
Development Coordinator, and Ms. Rita D. Comiling, of the
Municipal Agricultural Office, went to several livelihood
projects in the municipality of Albur. This was to find what
could be done to improve work efficiency and income to the
workers of these and other projects. The recommendations made in
this report can be summarized in the MPRAP to PPDO that will
accompany the Poverty Index data being collected in 17
municipalities on Bohol.
Household buri weaving project in Basacdacu The weaver processes
and weaves her buri cloth at home from local young buri leaves.
She produces a roll of 4 place mats joined by a finer buri
weave. The Toril barangay captain also buys these for export to
Cebu where the place mats are cut from the roll. The weaver gets
P14 per place mat (P56 per roll of 4). She also sells the
midribs of the buri palm leaf for basket making at P12 for 100,
and bundles of bure stems (pawa) to Tagbuane barangay for broom
making for P23 a bundle.
The weaving shed in Basacdacu houses 20 looms made by local
carpenters, though only 5 were being used at the time of the
visit. The municipality of Albur provided funds for construction
of the bamboo and zinc-roofed building and the looms.
The "spears" of young buri leaves are now mostly bought from
Inabanga municipality using funds from the Self-Employment
Assistant Program (SEAP) of the Social Welfare Program. Weavers
process the leaves themselves, though colored fibers used for
the few 5-inch (130 mm)-square glass coasters made there are
bought ready-dyed from Inabanga.
The weavers separate the young buri leaves from the "spears",
strip the fiber from them with a knife, bleach them by soaking
them in water containing oxalic acid, then sun dry them at their
homes. They then tie the fibers in sequence to make long skeins
for weaving. At the Center they weave this white buri into
8-meter lengths of cloth, 30 inches wide. The cloth is rolled up
as it is woven, and one 8-meter roll takes one person about five
days (a working week) of weaving from 9 am to 5 pm at the
The barangay captain of Toril buys 30 rolls of the cloth at a
time for P280 per roll. He does not impose a deadline and gives
a cash advance for the cloth. He exports this to Cebu from the
town of Tubigon from where other orders are sometimes
negotiated. The Center once obtained an order for 100 rolls from
Manila, but was unable to meet the deadline, and the buyer
refused the cloth already made as he considered it of poor
quality. In the past the weavers at the Center made the cloth
into bags and wall or ceiling-coverings, but no longer do so,
probably because the finished product was harder to sell than
the rolls of cloth. The only finished products still produced at
the Center are coasters, which are sold in Bohol. The main
problem the weavers perceive is the difficulty of obtaining
markets for their buri cloth.
Several households use strips of older buri leaves to make
spear-head-shaped fans 30 inches (760 mm) by 30 inches (760 mm)
that they sell for P3.50 to Toril barangay captain for export to
Cebu. Smaller fans of 18 by 18 inches (460 mm) sell for P2 or
Buri stems (from Basacdacu, Sikatuna and Loboc at P28 a bundle
or P30 a kilogram?) are soaked for 1½ to 2 months until the
fibers separate. Mrs. Tubera then dries the fibers in the sun
and rejects the darker brown ones, as they are weak. She bends
bundles of fiber double over both sides of a wooden peg through
the end of a short, thin bamboo pole that forms the handle (P60
for 100 handles), and ties them on with one or two strong
fibers. A baton of wood is then placed on each side of the fan
of fibers, and the two batons tied to each other at the ends.
Cutting the fibers to the same length levels the broom end.
On the larger brushes, an extra bundle of fibers is added to
each side of the fan of fibers, and tied in several places to
the broom handle by encircling them and the handle with strong
plastic twine. A few green or red fibers are included on each
side for decoration. The ends of these extra fibers are cut
straight on the handle, and the broom is made stronger by sewing
through all the fibers across the narrower part of the
fan-shaped broom. Small brooms sell individually for P5, larger
ones for P12 and the biggest for P18. Mrs. Tubera has an order
from a businessman in Poblacion who sends them to Davao,
Mindanao. She receives P120 for a dozen medium-sized brooms, and
makes 10 dozen per month, so earns P1,200 each month with which
she is putting her son through college.
There are 50 households making brooms in the area, and it was
not clear whether they all sell to the same middleman.
Salt-making is one of the source of income of some Alburanons.
Production begins when the upland farmers plow their fields for
rice production. This is because the "asinderos" salt-makers
trade their salt for rice in a barter system, and salt
production takes about as long as the growth of the rice it will
be exchanged for.
The fibrous husks of a large number of coconuts are placed in
pits on the landward edge of the mangrove area. These fill with
seawater at high tide, and this is retained in the pits for the
salt water to be absorbed into the fiber of the husks. (Or
perhaps the salt water drains away with each low tide and is
replenished with each high tide?) After an unspecified time of
soaking, the husks are removed from the salt water and allowed
to dry, before being burnt in the center of the salt-making hut
to leave a fine ash mixed with salt.
The ashes is then packed in a cone of bamboo about 1½ meters
high. Seawater is poured into the top of the cone and leaches
out the salt in the ash as it passes through. The water is
caught in a wooden trough below the cone. This extra-salty water
is then put into very small clay pots, and these pots wedged
together in a series of "bridges" across a large gutter made
from compacted coconut husk ash. A fire of palm wood is stoked
beneath the suspended pots to "cook" the salty water. The water
evaporates, leaving the dry salt in the pot. More and more of
the super-salty water from the ash-filled cone is continually
added to the pots, and the fire kept burning, until the pots are
full to the brim with salt. It takes one day to obtain the ash
from the dried coconut husks, and 100 pots can be filled with
dry salt over the fire in 3 hours.
The pottery-making enterprise is located beside the main road in
East Poblacion. Clay is dug from a pit near the sea, and mixed
with silicate soil before being ground through the large rollers
of an electric mill, in a pit beside the pottery works. This is
mixed with water and molded into pots of various sizes and
shapes on a potters wheel, rotated by the potter pushing round a
car wheel below the turntable with his feet. During our visit
simple, straight-sided water pots for poultry were being made in
about 2 minutes each. There were tall, large, elegantly shaped
pots for storing water, and round-bottomed pots for use in
cooking, in the open-sided work shed. Small, round-bottomed pots
for salt making are also made.
The local government unit of Alburquerque has the desire to
