Dae ko lilingawan

an sakong banwang ginikanan,

Kun saen an gabos

nagpoon: pagtubod, pag-uswag, karahayan asin pagkamoot.

Digdi ko itinananom

an sakong mga ugat,

siring man, digdi ako matalubo.

I shall not forget

my homeland,

Where everything

began: faith, progress,

kindness and love.

In this land is where

I planted my roots,

here, I will bloom.

The History of Legazpi City


Legazpi started as a barangay called “Sawangan” (the present location of Legazpi Port). Its inhabitants were mostly fishermen and farmers. In 1587, Franciscan friars of the “Doctrina of Cagsawa” began to convert the settlement to Christianity; in 1616, they transformed it into a separate town and parish called “Albay.” Its first parish priest built a small chapel and established the “Mission de San Gregorio Magno de Sawangan.”

Renowned worldwide, the City of Legazpi embraces the transition from once a humble city to the ever-developing largest city in Bicol region. It is an embodiment of a mother who continues to cultivate its children– the natural wonders confined within its boundaries and yet, it aspires to be more.
