Brief History

Pampanga was founded by the Spanish conquistador, Martín de Goiti, in 1571. The name was derived from the native Kapampangan words “pangpang ilog” meaning “riverside” where the early Malayan settlements were concentrated along the Rio Grande de la Pampanga. Kapampangan men are known for their gallantry and leadership while Kapampangan women are famous for their beauty and skill in culinary arts. Pampanga, one of the richest provinces in the Philippines, was re-organized as a province by the Spaniards on December 11, 1571. For governmental control and taxation purposes, the Spanish authorities subdivided Pampanga into towns (pueblos), which were further subdivided into districts (barrios) and in some cases, into royal and private estates (encomiendas). Ancient Pampanga’s territorial area used to include portions of the provinces of Bataan, Bulacan, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Tarlac, and Zambales in the big Island of Luzon of the Philippine Archipelago.
