The Provincial Profile of Misamis Occidental (975 words)
By 1818, Misamis was organized as a province covering the region from Dapitan in the west, up to Gingoog in the east and as far as Cotabato and Lanao del Sur in the south.
Although Misamis Occidental was originally populated by sea-faring Subanons, most of the people of the coasts are now mostly settled by Visayans whose roots lie across the Mindanao Sea, in the provinces of Cebu and Bohol.
Misamis Occidental was a bastion of Spanish and Christian influence in northern Mindanao and the province certainly does not lacking in relics and monuments that attest to this fact.
