General Description The Island of Negros is the second largest in the Visayas, after Panay. The natives of old called it BUGLAs, after the tall reeds predominant on the island. In 1527 Miguel Lopez de Legaspi, anchored in Bohol, sent an expedition to explore the neighboring landmass that was BUGLAS. The crew returned with reports of dark – skinned natives on the island, and so it was thereafter referred to as NEGROS.
