It is geographically located off the coast of Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental province, midway between the Visayas and Mindanao islands. Its capital is the municipality also named Siquijor. Called Isla del Fuego or the “Island of Fire” by the Spanish before, Siquijor is considered by many Filipinos to be a mystical island, full of mysterious and other supernatural phenomena. Siquijor’s reputation as a place of magic and sorcery both attracts visitors and keeps them away.
