Palapag, Northern Samar
Palapag was the hometown of Juan Ponce Sumuroy, a Waray who led a rebellion against the Spaniards from 1649-1650. The main reason for the Sumuroy Rebellion was the forcible conscription of workers from Eastern Visayas to work in the shipyards of Cavite.
Palapag is politically subdivided into 32 barangays.
