Bulusan

(3.4/5 based on 10 reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: outdoors, historic sites
Bulusan is a fourth class municipality in Sorsogon Province, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 22,089 people.It is bordered by the towns of Barcelona in the north and going counterclockwise, the towns of Casiguran, Juban, Irosin and Santa Magdalena. The islets of San Bernardino, about off the coast, falls under the jurisdiction of Bulusan.BarangaysBulusan is politically subdivided into 24 barangays; 8 of them are located in the Poblacion area.HistoryPre-Spanish periodLong before the Spaniards ever set foot on the archipelago, the natives of Bulusan were already living in organized though scattered settlements. Some lived in what used to be Inarado (now Licod or San Rafael), others in Ilihan, some in Pinayagan, and still a number lived in Capangihan - a place near the Paghasaan and Bayugin Rivers. Familiarity with the town's terrain will prove what these settlements have in common: that of being distant from the seacoast and being uplands. The reason behind this occurrence could very well be the presence of Moro pirates who used to attack the town especially the coastal areas, robbing the natives of their gold & whatever else came to be lying around, and burning the houses afterwards. Due to these Moro-related disasters, it was certainly a wise move to locate the settlements on higher ground.Recent excavations yielded artifacts such as platters, jugs, plates, and vases made from china and earthen burial jars in what used to be Inarado. These finds further strengthened some claims that the Chinese and the people in this part of the country were already engaged in trade even before the Cross & Sword reached these shores.
