It may have been named after the Douro (Duero) in the Iberian peninsula. Roman Catholicism was introduced to the town in 1860 by a Spanish priest. Duero was established as a municipality two years later, and a convent was constructed in 1868.[4]

The town of Duero, Bohol celebrates its fiesta on December 10, to honor the town patron Immaculate Conception.[5]
