History

This peaceful region’s history can be traced back when the country was still ruled by Lakan or Datu and when places were divided into barangays.

Historical findings show that the region was indeed rich and thriving in civilization. Trading was a common practice dating way back in the 13th and 15th centuries.

This region also gave rise to the country’s Illustrados (educated middle class) and the birth place of numerous historical prominent figures such as Jose Rizal, Emilio Aguinaldo, Apolinario Mabini and Manuel Quezon.
