Galimuyod, officially the Municipality of Galimuyod, is a 4th class municipality in the province of Ilocos Sur, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 10,748 people.[3]

Etymology[edit]

This town, formerly known as Cabisilan, was once the biggest barrio of Candon during the Spanish Regime. A land dispute between them and residents of neighboring Sapang, another barrio of Candon, resulted in a "gin-nuyod" (Ilocano for "tug-of-war") contest, a common game during those days, to settle it. The people of Cabisilan won over the people of Sapang, making Cabisilan the center of barrios near it. The old folks renamed the barrio Galimuyod, from the Ilocano words tali ("rope") and ginuyod ("pulled").
