This town used to occupy a large territory which included Valencia and Lila. Later, Valencia was separated from Dimiao because of increased population and Lila was made and independent municipality on January 1, 1915.
Dimiao is home to an attractive and interesting church, the Saint Nicholas Tolentine Parish, behind which are located the fascinating Ermita ruins, including a wall of tombs in a honeycomb-like arrangement, constructed between 1800 and 1815, but apparently never used.
When in Dimiao, don't forget to visit the church interior. The ceilings have been recently repainted with attractive murals.
In the inland area of this municipality, numerous interesting natural attractions can be found, including attractive twin falls (and twin caves), which requires a trek of a few hours to get there and back, during which you can see some nice views like rice terraces. The municipality is developing these as tourist attractions. You can ask the local tourist office for guidance.
Dimiao celebrate its town fiesta on the 10th of September in honor of Saint Nicholas de Tolentino.
