Talisay was formerly an estate of the Augustinians in 1648. The town had no church of its own and they had to go to San Nicolas for baptisms, weddings and burial rites. It became separated from San Nicolas by virtue of Royal Decree of August 16, 1856.
Two versions are given on why Talisay is so-named. One is that it is named after Magtalisay,
a kind of tree which used to be in abundance in the area. Another is that it was named after a town in Spain.
During the Spanish Revolution, three sons of Talisay were generals in the revolutionary forces. Two brothers today also became generals: AFP Chief of Staff Gen. Lisandro Abadia and
PAF Commanding Officer Loven Abadia.
The first general of this era is from Talisay , Ge. Isagani V. Ocampo.
March 26, 1945 is a day to remember not only by the residents of Talisay, but also by the entire Cebuanos. It was on this day when American Division, US Army landed in Talisay to begin the liberation of Cebu from the invaders - exactly 2 years, eleven months and sixteen days after the Japanse landed on precisely the same spot on April 10, 1942.

as a channel
Channel #talisay was created last March 24th, 2000. Thru the wide efforts of bLaKhAvEn, gibson` , `mckoi ,KiGoLsKi and XexguY. Five Corners of our game! There were but a few chatters in the channel until now, but lately, several people has come to mingle with the crowd.
It's really flattering to see those guys smile in front of their monitors. It's fun to stare at those lovely colored text that brought a smile on their faces. While in the chatroom, you would have these weired thoughts that would definitely make u laugh a bit. Those nicks yelling, some are fighting (not much to our dismay), and some would look like sitting ducks, waiting for the eggs to crack! LOL It's truely an amazing past time for those people who spent most of their time on the net. A kaleidoscope world of fun and excitement, yet a better way of making new friends without the hassles of leaving your doorsteps. Come and chat with us, enjoy your stay at #talisay. To the people behind, Thanks! KUDOS
