The Origin of the name of “Dalaguete”

The origin of the name Dalaguete is from a “Dalakit” Tree. In old times, before the Spaniards came, these trees had been used by people as major landmarks. These is the location where people gather for to sell and trade products. For several generations in pre-Hispanic Dalaguete, the area has always been unofficially called as “dalakit”. Its accessibility and its reputation as a communal area for community gathering have prompted the Spanish authorities to construct the church and eventually establish the area as part of an encomienda.
