Description: Misamis Oriental used to be a part of Cebu. In 1818, it became a “Corregimento” made up of four “Partidos” or divisions; namely, Partido de Misamis, Partido de Dapitan, Partido de Cagayan and Partido de Catarman. The name Misamis is derived from the word Misa (a Spanish term for mass or a church rite). When Christianity was yet new in the Philippines, every time the priest travelled around the province, the converts were usually heard to shout “Misa! Misa!”. Thus, over a period of time, the Spanish missionaries started to call the province by the name Misamis.
