Discovering the Rich History of Pamplona: A Journey Back in Time
In the early days, Pamplona was a picturesque lake surrounded by lush Aroma trees. Over time, people from neighboring barangays started settling in the area. Through years of hard work, the community cleaned and cared for the land. As more residents relocated from different places, a local organization called barangay was formed under the leadership of an elected leader.
Based on information from the Las Piñas City Tourism and Cultural Office, Pamplona has a profound history that deserves to be remembered and shared. The details and stories presented here are derived from their extensive research and documentation on the origin of Pamplona. Through their dedication to preserving and promoting the culture and history of Las Piñas City, we are given a deeper connection to the rich heritage of Pamplona.
Eduardo Castillo, who became the teniente del barrio, called for a meeting and established cooperation as the guiding principle in the area, naming it Aromahan.
One day, a wealthy and influential Spaniard on a hunting trip came across the well-organized village. Intrigued by the scenic beauty and the friendly residents, he decided to acquire the land. After several months of negotiations, the villagers were convinced to sell their properties.
A grand gathering was held after the successful land acquisition, attended by the governor-cillo, the teniente del barrio, Mr. Juan Francisco, and all the residents of the village. During this momentous event, the Spanish dignitary officially announced that the place would be named Pamplona, in recognition of his name and its origin in Pamplona, Spain.
