The name of “Loboc” is derived from the word “lobok”, a word referring to the act of pounding something with the use of mortar and pestle. It is said that when the early missionary fathers came to this inland village, they approached a villager who was pounding rice. They asked for the name of the place. Assuming that he was asked what was he doing, he replied, “ga lobok”. Thus, the place is called “Loboc”.

Date established: 1602

Founder: Rev. Fr. Juan de Torres
