Tigbauan got its name, like the majority of town centers, after a topographical distinction unique to the region — in this case after the Tigbao, a local name for a type of grass that used to swarm the countryside. Even until now, this type of grass can still be found near the river banks or even in the near-shorelines area as well.

Tigbauan is about 23 kilometers south-west of Iloilo City. You can reach this town via public-utility jeepneys or PUJ or by chartered cab. Travel time is about thirty to forty five minutes from the city proper. 

The Municipality of Tigbauan, a component town of the Province of Iloilo is a public corporation with dual function. Firstly it is functioning as apolitical government; and secondly, it is carrying out the function of the community in the administration of local affairs. It has fifty-two (52) component barangays, nine (9) of which are situated in the poblacion and the rests are scattered around the poblacion and spread up to the boundaries of the Municipalities of Oton, San Miguel, Tubungan, Leon and Guimbal.



Mayor Excel is the younger of 2 sons out of 5 children of three-termer Tigbauan Mayor Myrna Montealegre Torres (a native of Boac, Marinduque) and the late Tigbauan-born businessman Jaime Tacay Torres.
