December 8 2012 holiday in Batangas

The province of Batangas will be celebrating its annual foundation anniversary on December 8. The day, which falls on a Saturday, has been declared by the Office of the President as a special non-working holiday through Proclamation 504. The declaration was signed by Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa last November 15. Click here to read the full text of Proclamation 504.

Spaniards led by generals Martin de Goiti and Juan de Salcedo first reached Batangas in 1570. According to one account, the colonizers explored the coast of Batangas on their way to Manila (this was established a year later). In the process, they encountered a Malay settlement at the mouth of Pansipit River.

The province of Batangas as we know it today had two forerunners. First of these is Bonbon, which was founded in 1578 by Fr. Estaban Ortiz and Fr. Juan de Porras. A decade later, the colonial government abolished the Bonbon Province to give way to the Balayan Province, whose land area include present-day Batangas, MindoroMarinduque, southeast Laguna, and Camarines provinces.
