San Remigio’s History
When the marauding Moro pirates swept through the shores of northern Cebu, the townsfolk organized themselves into home-guards through ronda system under the command of a Spanish sentinel, by the name of Remigio Multon. His bravery and heroism during the fight against the pirates gained himself distinction as he was honored by prefixing the word “San” to his name-to lend religious dignity to his name. In addition to his honor, Kanghagas was later renamed as San Remigio which later on became the seat of the local government. As a sign of gratitude to him the residents named the town in his honor and endowed him with saintly assets. Eventually, San Remigio became the name of the town as this replaces Punta Isabel.
About the later part of the 1820s, the Spaniards converted Punta Isabel into a town headed by its first Gobernadorcillo, Capitan Juan Goopio, through a representative election participated in by the Cabezas de Barangay of the six original barangays, namely: Hagnaya, Punta, Tambongon, Victoria, Kanghagas.
