The town started as a barrio called SUANGAN and once a part of the town of Poro. A letter in Spanish dated February 23, 1852 by the Cabezas de Barangay and the Principales, to then Alcalde ( Mayor) Ramon Limos Y Mansa of Cebu, petitioned for its separation from the Cabezera of Poro. In the Errection de los Pueblos de Cebu, a letter dated March 29, 1852 granted the official approval to the request of the Leaders in SUANGAN for the establishment of the town apart from Poro, that made known that the town was named after Francisco de Asis.The Jesuits of Mandaue who had then established a mission in Suangan, and who were then devotees to San Jose possibly explains why both the City of Mandaue and the Municipality of San Francisco have San Jose as their Patron. The Patron’s feast falls every 19thday of March.
This small town is blessed with beautiful spots and sites. White sand beaches along the western and northern coasts; caves for those who are adventurous, wherein, the most popular is the Timobo Cave for a refreshing and rejuvenating swim. There are eleven identified amazing dive sites; our underwater paradise - so much attracting and inviting for exploration. We also have Lake Danao which is not only a tourist attraction but it is also a source of livelihood for the people, for its abundance of tilapia fish and kuhol shells for food, and the rare soli-soli grass to be made into mats, bags, and varieties of souvenir items for sale. Take a tour around the lake.
