MUNICIPALITY OF CATIGBIAN

Catigbi-an is an interior town north of Balilihan and west of Carmen. It is an old community, being one of the villages where the rebels were resettled after the Dagohoy Rebellion had been suppressed in 1829.

 
In 1903, when the province was reorganized, it was annexed to Balilihan but was made an independent municipality once more in October 1949.
 
Catigbi-an got its name after a tree which grew abundantly in the place.
