According to an article In Wikipedia, Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi reached the area of Cavite City in 1571. Shortly thereafter, the area was declared an encomienda (a tract of land granted by the King of Spain to individuals who rendered valuable service to the Kingdom). In 1909, the Charter of the City of Cavite was ratified through Commonwealth Act 547, which you can read in full here.
