History

Before the Spaniards came to the Philippine Archipelago, in most places, the natives gave the name of their place where they lived similar to the names of the plants and trees or based on some of the situations occurred in their locality. This is true in Barangay Tastasan. According to the forefathers of the residents, their place was formerly called “Putyukan Bato”.

Evidently, during World War I, the Philippines was the target of war. Filipinos throughout the country tried to escape and hide soon the invaders could not find them. According to the forefathers, the Spanish soldiers came looking for their enemies, but, they found nobody. With anger, they cut down all the plants, killed the animals, slashed and destroyed the houses and properties and, everything they found which were owned by the residents in everywhere they passed by.

When the Spaniards went back to their country, the Philippines was declared peaceful, then, the residents went back to their respective houses. Unexpectedly, they found their houses and properties already destroyed- everything were “unraveled”, which in local term means “Ang tanan natastas”. Lately, the residents shortened the words as “Tastasan” which means “the place where things unraveled”.
