Misamis Oriental (Cebuano: Sidlakang Misamis, Tagalog: Silangang Misamis) is a province of the Philippines located in the Northern Mindanao region. Its capital and provincial center is Cagayan de Oro City, which is governed independently from the province.

Geography[edit]

Located in Northern Mindanao, the province borders Bukidnon to the south, Agusan del Norte to the east and Lanao del Norte to the west. On the north is the Bohol Sea with the island-province of Camiguin just off its northern coast. Misamis Oriental occupies a total land area of 3,131.52 square kilometres (1,209.09 sq mi). When Cagayan de Oro City is included for geographical purposes, the province's land area is 3,544.32 square kilometres (1,368.47 sq mi).[1]

Subdivisions[edit]

Misamis Oriental is subdivided into 23 municipalities and 2 component cities. Cagayan de Oro City, the capital, is a highly urbanized city that is geographically within the province but governs itself independently from it.

History[edit]

In the 16th century, most of Mindanao was under the control of Muslims, and the inhabitants were converted into Islam. As part of Mindanao, the people of the territory were obliged to pay tribute to Muslim rulers.

Legislative Act. No. 3537 approved on 2 November 1929, divided the province of Misamis into two due to the lack of geographic contiguity. It was not until ten years later on 28 November 1939 that the division between Misamis Oriental and Misamis Occidental was implemented by Act. No. 3777. When Misamis Oriental separated, Don Gregorio Pelaez became its first governor.

In 1942, at the onset of World War II in the Philippines, Japanese soldiers landed in Misamis Oriental to occupy the region. Combined American and Philippine Commonwealth forces along with recognised guerrilla fighters liberated Misamis Oriental in 1945.

In May 2014 it was reported that an area in Barangay Lapad in Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental, in northern Mindinao, was declared a heritage site. Oyster fossils older than 200,000 years were discovered, according to Balita Pilipinas. Property owner, Raul Ilogon, told Balita Pilipinas that they had been seeing the fossils for 20 years thinking that they were ordinary rocks.[3]

Religion[edit]

Roman Catholicism predominates in the province with roughly 83% of the population. Many other Christian faiths compose most of the minority religions while Islam has a small but steadily increasing number.

Economy[edit]

The province is host to industries such as agricultural, forest, steel, metal, chemical, mineral, rubber and food processing.[citation needed] It is home to the 30 square kilometre PHIVIDEC Industrial Estate and the Mindanao International Container Port, all in Tagoloan. Del Monte Philippines, which exports pineapples all over the Asia-Pacific region, has a processing plant in Cagayan de Oro.

On January 10, 2008, Hanjin Heavy Industries and Construction Company of South Korea inked a contract to build a $2 billion shipyard building complex at Villanueva, Misamis Oriental with the PHIVIDEC Industrial Authority. It is bigger than Hanjin's $1 billion shipyard complex in Subic, Olongapo City which will hire 20,000 Filipinos to manufacture ship parts. The Philippine government declared the 441.8-hectare project site an economic zone (part of 3,000-hectare industrial estate managed by PHIVIDEC).[4]

Tourism[edit]

Misamis Oriental is home to many natural scenic spots that attracts millions[citation needed] of tourists annually.

Birhen Milagrosa Beach
This place in Brgy. Moog, Laguindingan, offers crystal clear water and fine gray sand. Its name is derived from the image of the Virgin Mary on its rockwall. In that spot, an altar has been built in honor of the Virgin Mary.
Punta Gorda Beach
Located just along the Provincial Road in Brgy. San Antonio, Jasaan, and Hermano, Balingasag (31 kilometres (19 mi) east of Cagayan de Oro), this beach has round, smooth stones that cover the beach front. The water is crystal clear even when viewed up the road. The Sangguniang Bayan Council of Balingasag proposes that it would be developed as a marine sanctuary if they would be given financial support by the local government.
St. Bernadette Beach
Located along the highway in Brgy. Poblacion, Binuangan, this beach is a magnificent sight for it offers crystal clear water. A shrine is built in honor of St. Bernadette.
Mempepe White Beach
An undeveloped beach in Brgy. Poblacion, Binuangan (66 kilometres (41 mi) east of Cagayan de Oro), with fine white sand that is shaped like a cove with lush vegetation in the background.
