Minglanilla, officially the Municipality of Minglanilla, (Cebuano: Lungsod sa Minglanilla; Tagalog: Bayan ng Minglanilla), is a 1st class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 132,135 people.[3]

Minglanilla is bordered to the north by the City of Talisay, to the west is the city of Toledo, to the east is the Cebu Strait, and to the south is the city of Naga.

Minglanilla lies within Metro Cebu. It is known as the "Sugat Capital of the South". (Sugat in Cebuano means meeting.) The Kabanhawan (Cebuano for "Resurrection") festival is held annually on Easter Sunday.

A big socio-religious event in Minglanilla is the Sugat, which attracts not only people from adjacent towns but also from Cebu city and further. On Black Saturday night, a public dance is held at the church plaza to witness the re‑enactment of the "meeting" of the risen Christ and his mother. Their images, borne on richly decorated carrozas, meet amidst joyous songs and the presence of child angels suspended by wires.

History

Father Sanchez, Minglanilla's first parish priest, is credited as the founder of the town in 1858. The roads and bridges were built by the same Fr. Sanchez together with Fr. Magaz.

There were a number of capitanes who headed the town during the Spanish era. The first capitan was Hilario Castañares. During the American regime the first was Canuto Larrobis. The first elected municipal mayor was Gregorio de la Calzada.

Buat was the former name of Minglanilla. It was the place where early settlers dried (buad/buat) their sea catches. But in 1858, it was renamed Minglanilla by Fr. Sanchez, after a municipality in Cuenca, Castile-La Mancha, Spain.

The town suffered setbacks, among them during the Philippine Revolution when insurrectos burned down its municipal building and looted many houses. This event is remembered by a street named 18 de Julio (18 July). In 1942, its poblacion was razed to the ground by the Japanese in retaliation for the presence of the guerrillas in the town

Festivals

  • Sugat–Kabanhawan festival
In its devotion to the celebration of Christ's resurrection, the municipality of Minglanilla has long held the distinction of being the "Sugat Capital of the south". Annually held every Easter Sunday, the occasion primarily focuses the re‑enactment of the meeting of the Risen Christ and the Sorrowful Mother – followed by a string of activities and events scheduled to take place throughout the day. As one of the biggest annually celebrated occasions of the municipality, the festival takes a direct translation in celebrating Christ's resurrection, with street dancing, a wide assortment of day games, and entertainment features. Essentially a socio-religious event, celebrations have played the role of host to a diverse range of organized contests, competitions and games, including a carabao race, a burda-making contest (burda = embroidery), and a mud volleyball tournament. Easter-egg hunts also are part of Sugat-Kabanhawan festivals, just as the street dancing and the ritual showdown have become mainstay staples of the festivals overall program flow.
