Municipality of Larena

The Municipality of Larena is a fifth-class municipality located in the island province of Siquijor. Larena got its name in 1906 in honor of the late Governor Demetrio Larena who was the civil governor of Negros Oriental. During the Spanish regime, there was not much economic, social, cultural, and political advancement in Larena. Now, Larena prides itself for being the commercial and educational center in the province. Its bustling town boasts of landline and mobile communication facilities, banking and other business establishments and a state college. Infrastructure projects have also sprung up around the municipality in recent years. For more info, visit www.larena.gov.ph.
