Alimodian Barangay - Umingan
Feast Day: April 30
Patron Saint: St. Vincent Ferrer
The story of the elderly residents about the name of the place originates from the flood. There is a great wide flood long time ago that people living in the mountain can see. There is a place which has a plate-like shape (pinggan) which was not affected by the flood. Later the people started to settle in this place and due to repetitive calling the name of the place became Umingan from the word pinggan (plate).
This place is blessed with cool climate and awesome nature. The barrio pride itself with Bobon-Ebo or Oyang Cave, Umingan Plateau, Ibagat Springs and the locally famous Bato Dungok tagged as the "Pico de Loro of Western Visayas", the highest point in Umingan as its attractions.
