THE ESKAYA TRIBE

A visit to Duero is not complete if one misses to go up the highest mountains of Taytay and meet the Eskaya tribe.  The Eskayas are one of three indigenous peoples in the province of Bohol. They are distinguished by their distinct literature and language.


Immaculate Conception Parish Church

 

The Duerohanons’ pride is their church and convent built in the year 1868, and is the oldest building in the municipality. The Duero Church, although advocated to Santa Felomina at first, is presently dedicated to the Immaculate Conception whose feast day it celebrates with much revelry every 8th of December.  The Church is situated along the national highway.
