A Glimpse of Barangay Didipio

The place Didipio was one of the distant barrios of the town because of the inaccessibility of roads. The physical attribute of the place caused the inhibition of the rebellious group known as the New People’s Army (NPA) in the early 1980s. Actually, according to the record, a heavy encounter against the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) took place in early 1986. Years after, peace and development followed until the full discovery of the wealth of nature in the late 20th century. Didipio is a barangay of the municipality in 1960 but officially declared in 1972. Now, it’s the “home” of the mining operation of OceanaGold Philippines Inc.
