Brief Historical Background
Medellin, in Cebu, is a name coming from the name of a village in Spain with the same name.
Medellin turned a municipality through the decree of Queen Isabel II of Spain in 1881, but it was once part of Daanbantayan.
The Municipality is composed of 19 barangays also with interesting and exciting resources for travel and activities. Here they are…
Antipolo, Canhabagat, Caputatan Norte, Caputatan Sur, Curva, Daanlungsod, Dalingding Sur, Dayhagon, Don Virgilio Gonzales, Gibitngil, Kawit, Lamintak Norte, Lamintak Sur, Luy-a, Maharuhay, Mahawak, Panugnawan, Poblacion, Tindog.
Including all the barangays, Medellin has a total land area of over seven thousand hectares. It has arable land, residential area, some commercial and industrial zones.
However, it has no classified forest or reservation area nor wildlife reserve land. Of course, it has national parks or playground aside from beach resorts.
Most probably, like Medellin in Spain, Medellin in Cebu Province is generally flat covering over 80 percent of its total land area. Most of this flatland is planted with sugarcane.
Some of the slopes can be found in Antipolo, Caputatan Norte, Curva, Panugnawan, Kawit and Maharuhay Barangays. Some steep relief areas partly belong to Kawit and Maharuhay Barangays.
