Veinte Reales

During the Spanish occupation, the ancestors who lived at the place paid a rich Spaniard who bought a piece of their land. They gave one real per square meter. The whole cost they paid was “Veinte Reales” (20 reales).

Another legend was that there was a magic well that contains delicious water that can quickly heal any sickness. But in order for you to drink it, you must pay Veinte Reales (20 reales).

The most famous landmark in the barangay is the Valenzuela Memorial Park. It is also home to industrial factories of wire, fishball, packaging and rubber products. As of late 2009, there was an estimated 22,858 residents who dwell in this 192.9 hectare land.
