It is bounded in the north by Asuncion Pass and the Visayan Sea; the City of Talisay and Municipality of Calatrava in the south; cities of Cadiz and Silay in the west and the City of Escalante and Municipality of Toboso in the east.The name of the city comes from the semi-spherical shell called "sigay", which can be found in the area.BarangaysSagay City is politically subdivided into 25 Barangay.HistorySagay Under SpainSagay City was originally called Arguelles when Teniente Francisco Rodriguez and Basilio Cordova founded it in 1860 in the mouth of the Bulanon River.
