History Sneak PeekA Blast From The Past

About UsThe town of La Castellana was officially born on January 1, 1918 when the Spanish government recognized it as a municipality which is separate and distinct from the township of Pontevedra, also known as Marayo. Since then, La Castellana went on to become a first-class municipality with a population of 71,013 people in 14,111 households according to a 2010 Census. The early settlers then called the town “Lapak” and for a time, it was under the jurisdiction of Marayo or what is now known as Pontevedra.

There is no historical document supporting the popular belief except that it was transferred by word of mouth from the early settlers to the next generation.

Major Milestones

Marayo settlers, in their quest for additional food and other important items discovered a lush valley which they soon called Lapak for some period of time..
Spanish "conquistadores" and explorers stumbled upon the same place and named it La Castellana after Paseo de La Castellana in Madrid because of the similarity in topography and vegetation.
A town is born. Due to the high availability of work, natives and other nationalities flocked to the place and soon, the place became a major center of commerce and trade. A local government was later established and finally, on January 1, 1918, the town of La Castellana was born.
