HistoryEdit

Sagñay was established in the late 17th century by the Spanish friars. Like the town of Lagonoy, Sagñay also formed part of the province of Albay but it was separated in the year 1846 by the order of Governor General Narciso Claveria.

The parish of St. Andrew was founded in the same year that Sagñay gained its independence as a town. The town's annual fiesta is held every November 30, honoring Saint Andrew the Apostle - Town's Patron Saint.
