THE CHARM OF MUNICIPALITY OF DON SALVADOR BENEDICTO

One of the most charming places to visit when in Negros Occidental, the Municipality of Don Salvador Benedicto. The place lies at the mid-center of the hinterlands of the entire North of the Province of Negros Occidental.  It was primarily established to consolidate all the remote Barangays of one city and two municipalities which seemed neglected, considering the inaccessibility of the area to each corresponding population-centers due to the distance,  terrains and road conditions.
