Discovering the Rich History of Pamplona: A Journey Back in Time

account_balanceLas Piñas News account_circleTimothy Martin Masagca chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

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.

As we delve into the rich history of Pamplona, we owe our gratitude to the Las Piñas City Tourism and Cultural Office for their tireless efforts in preserving and promoting the cultural heritage of the area. Their meticulous research and dedication to showcasing the historical significance of Pamplona provide us with a greater appreciation for our shared past.

Whether you are a resident or a curious visitor, exploring Pamplona's history will transport you to a bygone era and deepen your connection to the vibrant heritage of Las Piñas City. Let us cherish and celebrate the stories that have shaped our community, preserving them for future generations to come.
