San Jose
is the second town north of Dumaguete City. It is about 20 minutes from the capital city of the province. In terms of population, the town is the smallest in the province.

Land Area: 54,46 km ²
Population: 19,098 (2010)
Barangays: 14

A Brief History___________________________

It was called Ayuquitan by the Spanish colonizers. They inquired what the place was called and ,the natives, thinking the strangers were pointing at the pile of husks and chaff, the leftovers of fruits and grains after birds had picked their fill, informed them these were "inokitan".

The town was a mere "visita" administered from Amlan since 1850. When the Americans came, they fused Ayuquitan with Amlan for administrative expediency. In 1955, it finally gained the status of independent municipality and was renamed San Jose.

The People______________________________

Majority of the population speak the Cebuano dialect.

Commerce and Industry_____________________

Seven kilometers of shoreline along Tañon Strait give San Jose two of the province's shortest take-off points to seaports in certain towns in Cebu. Ferries and barges keep inter-island trade and travel busy, bolstering an economy based mainly on sugarcane, rice, copra and cottage crafts.

Getting There and Away_____________________

Buses and jeepneys, from neighbouring cities and towns, pass through San Jose several times daily.

Other Information__________________________

Upon its construction in 1952, the parish church was remarkable for its sleek, contemporary lines, a total departure from massive Hispanic architecture.

The Lourdes Shrine in Cambaloctot is a popular pilgrimage site.

San Joses's beaches are sought even by out-of-towners. The southern coastal approach to the town is an attractive strech of highway, as is the storied Lalaan Drive.

The town fiesta is ushered in by the Ayuquitan Festival, streetdancing and field presentations retelling the origin of the towns old place name.
