About:

Historical Background:
There are two versions of story that led to the name of the town. The first version was about the story of a datu named Datu Dumangsil who escaped from Borneo and reached the southern portion of Luzon and resided at the mouth of Pansipit River. The datu and his troops stayed in the area where Taal is now located. The "Lakan" or "Laka" or tribe settled in this area. Tribesmen would go to the area to hunt. Every time they see fellow tribesmen, they always exchanged greetings such as "Kalaka" and "Katribu", meaning fellow tribesmen. The greetings to each other remained and eventually became the official name of Calaca.
