Valencia
is a town west of Dumaguete City. It is nestled on the slopes of Mt. Talinis.

BRIEF PROFILE
Land Area: 147.49 km²
Population: 31,477 (2010)
Barangays: 24

A Brief History___________________________

Valencia is used to be called Ermita, a Spanish word for a place of refuge, because this was where natives retreated to during moro raids. It was later renamed Nueva Valencia by a priest who was reminded by his hometown in Spain. It was again renamed to Luzurriaga, after a prominent local politician.

In 1948, it became Valencia, one of Negros Oriental's three interior towns.

The People______________________________

Majority of the population speak the Cebuano dialect.

Commerce and Industry_____________________

Valencia is known for its cutflowers and ornamentals. Lanzones and rambutan gardens are gaining ground as pasalubong items in their season.

Getting There and Away_____________________

Jeepneys ply the Dumaguete-Valencia route many times daily.

Other Information__________________________

Two prominent structures commemorate its Hispanic past: the Church of Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados; and a fountain in its sunken plaza, which is fed by water from the mountain.

Camp Lookout offers panoramic views of Dumaguete and islands to the east.

On the Sagbang promontory, the tri-sidal Filipino-American-Japanese Amity Shrine rises 30 feet on the last and fiercest encounter of World War II in Negros Oriental. Relics from that battle can be found in the privately-owned Cataal Memorabilia Museum in the poblacion.

Casaroro and Pulangbato Falls are the most popular falls, being the most accessible, in the province.

Mountaineers from various parts of the country regularly trek to Mt. Talinis.

Valencia sits on a rich geothermal reserve from which the Philippine National Oil Corporation (PNOC) generates power for Negros Oriental and neighboring islands.
