HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Allang is one of the original barangays of Ligao in existence during the Cadastral Survey conducted on March 4, 1932.

The place was teeming with “gallang” plant during the early days. This plant is a root crop which is edible and very delicious. During the Spanish occupation, when the Spaniards explored the place, they named the place Gallang, which was taken from the name of the plant. As time went by, the “G” from the name was left out and the place is now known as “Allang”.

The first settles of the were five families, namely, Pelecia, Cañotal, Dolom, Segundino and Falcon. Basilio Dolom became the first “Teniente del Barrio”, followed by Falcon and Estrada.

A fiesta is celebrated every 19th day of October in honor of their patron saint, San Pedro de Alcantara.
