Talibon in a nutshell

Talibon got its name from the word “talibong” which means bolo or spear, the most common household implement in olden  times. But, some folks had more interesting account. They maintained that a Spaniard asked a farmer about the name of the place. But, the farmer who was cutting his pestle, could not understand the Spaniard. He thought the Spaniard was asking what he was doing, so he answered “talibon” which means he was cutting evenly the end of his pestle. From that time on, the Spaniards called the place Talibon.

Talibon gained prominence in history when it brought forth a very illustrious son, who became the greatest Boholano of all times. He was the late President Carlos Polestico Garcia, the fourth president of the Philippines. Until now, a century after his natal day, the memory of this famous son remains ever vibrant and fascinating.
