LEGEND OF SAN ROQUE:

SAN ROQUE (1902) – The barangay of San Roque was known as Aghao for many years. In this place was a deep-water well where people use to quench their thirst. One day, while some people were looking down the well, they were much surprised when they saw a big lizard–like reptile (called “hawo” in Visayan dialect) inside the well that seem to be having its soothing drink. The people did not use the well for quite a long time believing that the water inside was already polluted. When the well was used again, people would remind the well users of the lizard-like creature they once saw by saying “Ag hawo.” Every time when people would drop by the well for a drink, naughty companions always say “ag hawo.” For many years, the barangay was popularly called as Aghao. The place was later renamed as San Roque in honor of their patron saint.
