Catigbian is an interior town north of Balilihan and west of Carmen. It is an old community, being one of the villages where the rebels were resettled after the Dagohoy Rebellion had been suppressed in 1829. In 1903, when the province was reorganized, it was annexed to Balilihan but was made an independent municipality again in October 1949. Catigbian got its name after a tree which grew abundantly in the place. When the town was recreated in 1949, there were only 15 barrios within its territorial limits, but this number has grown to 22 barangays today.


Catigbian celebrate its town fiesta on the 8th of December in honor of Immaculate Conception.
