LEGEND OF LAGTANGON:

LAGTANGON (1902) – The name Lagtangon was taken from the word “lagtang. “ “Lagtang” is a vine that grew abundantly in this place in the older days. The barangay folks cultured these plants and use it as herbal medicine. Some people use the fruits of these plants for fishing. The fruits of “lagtang” are poisonous to fish as well as to human beings. The use of “lagtang” for catching fish was very rampant in the past and is now considered as a destructive method of fishing. This method of fishing is regarded as illegal and is no longer being used.
