Visiting Talalora is a must and the fishing town in Samar is interesting, filled with things that are amazing and unique.
Known in the past as a haven for faith healers, nobody would even dare to offend the locals here for fear of being hexed as a form of vengeance.
Talalora is just one of three places stereotyped as home of this folk magic.  Perhaps as a result of stories about this town people were frightened and freaked out and decided not to visit the place again!

Talalora is a former village of Villareal, Samar.  Some said it was hard to locate since vines called 'Talalora' were all over the place.

After Liberation at the end of the war it was created as an independent town on June 22nd 1947.  The wharf destroyed during the war and the previous typhoons was reconstructed.

The town has undergone many changes since then.

You have probably read in some online articles such as in Wikipedia that Talalora is known to be one of the centers of witchcraft and wizardry, just like Hogwarts in the Harry Potter series.  It was true then!

There were those who really knew how to cast voodoo spells against someone. Many knew how to perform rituals and incantations.

Had someone been their customer, just tell them what they would do - what someone wished to happen to their enemy and then the one who performs the spell would do the rest.

They also had special kinds of plants, which create the rashes and marks nobody wants to have. (These plants were known as Harupay.)

Witchcraft was commonly known in the place as barang palakad.  Those who performed it were called himangnoan. Learning how to do sorcery was mandatory if someone came from a family who were identified as witches.

It was considered as something worthy to be inherited from their parents, had they been matriarchs and patriarchs of the witches' clan.
