The Municipality of Alcoy is located in the southern part of the island of Cebu. The old name of the town is Mambaje and was once a part of the town of Dalaguete. A parish was established at the place in 1890. A provincial decree on July 16, 1897 later made the place into a municipal corporate. The first parish priest of the town noted that the place resembled one of the more popular cities in Spain, Alcoy. Due to this, the town was renamed Alcoy.
