Carmen is an enterior
town located near the center
of the island 58.8 kms. From
the City. This town is used
to be a part of Bilar. When it
was made an independent muni-
cipality, it was called Carmen in
honor of a woman
who was said to be a popular
figure in the community.
Carmen is strategically
located in the heart of the island.
The two national roads that stretch
from coast intersect at Carmen.
It is in Carmen and Sagbayan
that the fascinating mounds of Bohol
known as the Chocolate Hills can be
seen at their best. What is strange
about them is the presence of caves
under some of them . Another tourist attraction is the statue of the Virgin of Fatima at barrio Villa Fatima.
A private school, the St. Anthonys Academy, offers the complete secondary course. Carmen is the hometown of former Congressman Simeon Toribio.
During World War 11, Carmen became the seat of the Civil Government when the Japanese carried out their mopping-up operations in Bohol. The headquarters of the Bohol Area Command was also transferred here from Loboc.
