Ferrol is a sixth class municipality in the province of Romblon, in the Philippines.HistoryFerrol was established in 1850 as a barrio of Odiongan municipality by Spanish colonial authorities. They discovered the place some 10 kilometers south-west after repulsing and chasing a convoy of Muslim pirates that attacked Odiongan. The Spanish noted the resemblance of the bay in the vicinity to the bay of Ferrol, Spain, which is the home port of Spain's Maritime Department of the North, hence the town's name.In 1978, in order to consolidate the Onhan-speaking barangays of Odiongan into one municipality, Assemblyman Nemesio Ganan Jr. authored a bill in the Congress of the Philippines which created Ferrol, together with the barangays of Agnocnoc, Bunsoran, Hinagoman, Tubigon, and Claro M. Recto in a new municipality. On 11 June 1978, Ferrol formally became the 16th municipality in Romblon by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 1492, signed by President Ferdinand Marcos.GeographyFerrol is located on Tablas Island. It is bounded on the north by Odiongan, on the west by the Tablas Strait, on the east by Santa Maria, and on the south by Looc. It has a total land area of 26.72 km2.Use our Philippines vacation builder to arrange your visit to Ferrol and other destinations in Philippines.
