Brief History

Mambatad, a coastal barangay is 2 kilometers from the poblacion along the national road to Antique. It got its name from a wheat-like cereal locally called batad that abounded there in the past.

This place is not just a vacationing spot but also the landing place of motorized fishing boats called basnigan during the fishing season. Its deep blue waters teem with fish including bangus fry and shrimps (hipon). It also produces salt and copra.

Barangay heads were Hilarion Frane, Gavino Monocillo and Apolonio Najarila who served before, during and after World War II assisted by Delfin Molase, sub-teniente. Those who served after the war were Federico Palacios (1946-1951), Apolonio Najarilla (1952-1955) and Vicente Naret (1956-1971) followed by Leopoldo Monocillo.

Mambatad's patroness, Nuestra Seņora de Salvacion, is honored in May. It shares a complete elementary school with its neighbor Barangay Bacauan.
