LEGEND OF PIDE
Long long ago, there was only one barangay called Fedilisan located at northern part of Sagada. One day, a pregnant dog went away to find some food to eat. In the morning, the owner of the dog worried because his dog didn’t go home last night, so he decided to go and find it. He found his dog at the upper part , one kilometer’s away from the said barangay. The dog had already gave birth at the center of this place under a big pine tree. The man discovered that this location is very beautiful and good for a place to stay. He, then, built a little house and began to cultivate some farms for him and his dogs to live at.
As days go by, some individuals from Fedilisan followed him until it became a community or barangay named, “Pide” which means side.
Barangay Pide is at the northern part of Sagada, centered by the three barangays of Bangaan, Aguid, and Fedilisan.
Barangay Pide had a population of three hundred ninety seven (397) at the present.
