Talisay, officially the City of Talisay (Hiligaynon: Dakbanwa sang Talisay; Cebuano: Dakbayan sa Talisay; Tagalog: Lungsod ng Talisay), is a 4th class component city in the province of Negros Occidental, Philippines. According to the 2020 census, it has a population of 108,909 people. [3] It is about 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) north of Bacolod, facing the Bacolod–Silay Access Road in the east.

It is part of the metropolitan area called Metro Bacolod, which includes its neighbors Silay to the north and Bacolod to the south.[5] It has a total land area of 20,118 hectares (49,710 acres).

Talisay is often confused with another Visayas city also named Talisay, which is a component city in Cebu.

History

The Negritos, natives who led nomadic lives at the foot of scenic North Negros mountain ranges, originally inhabited Talisay. In 1788, families of Malay descent settled in the pristine part of Negros Island and named it Minuluan. Unknown to many, the sugar industry in province has its very roots in Talisay. The enterprising Recollect priest led by Fray Fernando Cuenca, spurred the economic development of this once sleepy Sitio through the planting of sugarcane in vast tracts of land we call ‘haciendas’. still part of the City of smiles

The seedlings, brought from Spain, thrived well in the rich, loamy soil. Fray Cuenca improved sugar production of the crude wooden mills with the invention of ‘Molino de Agua’. The Spanish colonizers became guardians of our economic, socio-political and spiritual lives, and with more of the Minuluan population embracing the Catholic faith, the Sitio was decreed a town on September 10, 1850, with San Nicolas de Tolentino as its patron saint. It was renamed Talisay after the tree that grew in abundance along the mouth of the Matab-ang River.

To accommodate the growing population, three more barrios were established – Dos Hermanas and San Fernando in the northern part and Concepcion in the South.

At the turn of the century, Talisay became a significant player in revolt against Spain through the leadership of General Aniceto Lacson. The wily general and erstwhile Katipunero of the North teamed up with General Araneta from the South during the victorious Cinco de Noviembre uprising in 1898 that saw the Spaniards capitulating without bloodshed. The intervening years saw Talisay growing and methamorphosing into the budding city that is today-full of promise and potential. On February 11, 1998, by virtue of Republic Act No. 8489, Talisay through the effort of its local official led by the Mayor Amelo Lizares was finally elevated into a city.[6]

Barangays

Talisay City is politically subdivided into 27 barangays.
