B BR RI IE EF F H HI IS ST TO OR RY Y O OF F L LE EG GA AZ ZP PI I

The City began as a Barangay called Sawangan (now Legazpi
Port) whose inhabitants were mostly fishermen and farmers.
From 1587 to 1616, the spiritual administration of the town
was under the Franciscan friars of the DOCTRINA OF
CAGSAWA (now Daraga). Officially, the Royal Decree dated
22 September 1856 gave the name LEGAZPI to the ancient
village of Sawangan, to perpetuate the memory of the
Adelantado Don Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. Don Lorenzo Hac
was the first elected Gobernadorcillo. Rev. Camilo Abainza
was acting Parish Priest. First a city under the Becerra Law of
1892, it was dissolved into a municipality during the American
occupation. A city for the second time by virtue of Republic
Act No. 306 dated 18 July 1948, which included the
Municipality of Daraga. On 8 June 1954, it was once more re-
created as a municipality. Finally, on 12 June 1959, per
Republic Act No. 2234, as amended by Republic Act No. 5525,
Legazpi became a city for the third time. Presidential Decree
No. 125, issued in 1973, declares the Municipality of Daraga as
part of Legazpi City.
