History of Barangay Talaga

Barangay Talaga got its name from a folklore aside from the literal translation of the Kapampangan word Talaga which means “a well” (deep well).

According to the story, many Japanese soldiers came to live in the barangay during their occupation. One thing that these soldiers noticed in the barangay is that it had a lots of wells. Then one day, an accident occurred when a Japanese soldier who was getting water fell-off the well then an old man saw the incident and yelled “Ing hapon me talaga ya! Menakbag ya at ene linto!” (The Japanese fell into the well and got devoured). Since then they called the place “Talaga”.

And from 1960s, the craft of tinapa-making has been the bread and butter of Capaseños for a long period of time, making it not only a livelihood but their sense of pride; tinapa, made with love as they say. It had been a party of their culture identity and success stories. This industry apart from agriculture, antique shops business, garments and manufacturing, have played vital role in success of many generations.
