The highly-urbanized Butuan City, the regional center of Caraga, is the commercial hub of the Agusan Valley. The downtown area, on the left bank, is located 8 kms. from the river's mouth and is connected to the other bank (Brgy. Ampayon) by the Magsaysay Bridge at Jose C. Aquino Ave..
|Places to See|
- Brgy. Babag is where laksoy, a local nipa palm wine, is distilled in crudely-made vats. To get there, you have to travel via Jose Rosales Ave..
- Rizal Park, at the intersection of Zamora, Concepcion, Juan Luna and San Jose Sts., is the site of the National Shrine of the Philippine Flag in Mindanao which commemorates the first formal raising of the Philippine flag in Mindanao on January 17, 1899.
- The Banza Church Ruins, at the junction of the Agusan and Baza Rivers in Lilo, Brgy. Banza, are the oldest ruins of a stone church in Mindanao. Built in 1625 by Recollect friars, it was burned by Moro pirates in 1753. What remains is the bell tower now enveloped by a banyan (balete) tree.
- The modern baroque St. Joseph's Cathedral (Concepcion St.).
- The Butuan Diocesan Liturgical Museum, at ground floor of the St. Joseph Cathedral Convent, showcases prized collections of religious and liturgical arts and materials used by missionaries in Agusan and Surigao ranging from liturgical paraphernalia to all kinds of vestments. There is also a holy water font carved from a solid block of hardwood, an 18th century charcoal-fired hostmaker, a giant 6-ft. high candelero, a centuries-old piano organ, religious statues, a confessional box and other religious items and artifacts. Tel: 44-9091 & 225-3321.
- The Balanghai Shrine Museum, at Brgy. Libertad, between the city and the airport, displays in a specially made glass case, the 1,650-year old balanghai, the oldest of nine boats discovered in 1976 by pothunters in search of Chinese ceramics at Brgy. Ambangan. Three of these water-logged timber boats have been excavated while the others are still in situ. The balanghais were declared a National Cultural Treasure. These large sea-going wooden plank-built and edge-pegged outrigger boats are 15 m. long and 3 m. wide across the beam. Carbon-14 dating indicates it belongs to the 4th and 13th to 14th century AD. The oldest was dated to 320 AD by Tokyo’s Gakushuin Uniiversity. Two others were dated to 990 and 1250 AD. These predate the relics of Viking ships in European museums and they represent the oldest fleet of boats excavated in one place.
- The Butuan Regional Museum, at Brgy. Do-Ongan, is a branch museum of the National Museum located 2 kms. from downtown. It was established as an offshoot of the discovery of the balanghais. The museum houses the rich artistic, historic and cultural heritage of the Butuanons and the neighboring provinces in Northern Mindanao. It has two exhibit galleries. The Archaeological Hall displays archaeological finds found near the Agusan River in 1984 like skulls, death masks, porcelain, burial coffins, pottery and jewelry. The Ethnological Hall exhibits contemporary cultural materials depicting the Butuanon lifestyle. Tel: 342-5328.
- The Fr. Urios College Museum, at the third floor of the Urios College Bldg. along San Francisco St., was established in 1975 and houses ethnographical and archaeological artifacts from Northern Mindanao. Tel: 41-5266 & 5-2545.
- Delta Discovery Park, in Brgy. Bonbon, has a 1.3-km. long zipline, the longest in Mindanao.
- As early as the 10th century, according to the Chinese Soong Shi (history), Butuanons had already established trade relations with the kingdom of Champa (Vietnam) and later came to China. The remains of nine balanghais dating from 320 AD to 13th century and used by early migrants for travel throughout Southeast Asia have been discovered and 10th century Tang Dynasty pottery was unearthed near Butuan in 1976.
- Butuan's history is closely connected with the Butuan River which is the means of access to the interior. Originally located at Pinamangculan by the banks of the Masao River, 1 km. from Brgy. Libertad, flooding forced the people moved to Maug (now Magallanes), at the mouth of the Agusan River. Later, they transferred to Lapaca (now Linungsuran, Brgy. Banza), about 5 kms. inland of Agusan River. Flooding again forced the people to transfer, this time permanently to a higher place called Agao, which is the present site of the city. At the time of the Spanish arrival, Chinese merchants were trading with riverbank settlements.
- On January 17, 1899, during the revolution, the first formal hoisting of the Philippine flag was done here.
- In the middle of 1943, during the Japanese occupation in World War II, Butuan was razed to the ground when guerrilla forces attacked the enemy garrison.
- In 1945, Filipino troops, together with the recognized guerrillas, attacked the Japanese forces during the Battle of Agusan.
- On October 20, 1948, still recovering from the war, the entire municipality was ruined by a fire.
- From the 1950s to the mid 1970s, the boom of the logging industry made Butuan the "Timber City of the South," leading to an influx of business and fortune seekers from other provinces.
- On August 2, 1950, Butuan became a chartered city.
- On February 7, 1995, Butuan was reclassified, from a chartered city, to a "highly urbanized city."
- It was the capital of the province until August 16, 2000 when Republic Act 8811 transferred the provincial capital to Cabadbaran City.
The “Timber City of the South,” this highly urbanized sea and river port is an important center of wood-based industries.
