Corella - Bohol Destinations


Corella is a 6th class municipality in the province of Bohol, Philippines.

According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 7,471 people. It is located 10 kilometers north of the provincial capital, Tagbilaran City.

Corella is known primarily as the home of the endemic Philippine Tarsier, the world's smallest primates. The 7.4 hectare Philippine Tarsier sanctuary run by the Philippine Tarsier Foundation, as well as the Research and Development Center is in Barangay Cancatac (Canapnapan?) of Corella, about three kilometers from the town proper.

The people of Corella are predominantly conservative Roman Catholics who belong to the Parish of Our Lady of the Village (Latin: Nuestra Señora del Villar) whose feast is celebrated on April 27, only four days before the Feast of St. Joseph, the patron saint of Tagbilaran City celebrated on May 1.

Corella does not have any major industry. It boasts of abundant water supply underneath its patrimony, benefitting mostly the residents of Tagbilaran City with the infrastructure design catering more for the city. As such, it is the town that has become indebted to the government-owned but privately run water distributor for its water consumption.


Corella is politically subdivided into 8 barangays.

* Anislag

* Canangca-an

* Canapnapan

* Cancatac

* Pandol

* Poblacion
