General Trias

(4/5 based on a few reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: religious sites
General Trias, formerly San Francisco de Malabon, is a first-class component city in the province of Cavite, Philippines. Through Republic Act 10675, a plebiscite was held in December 12, 2015 with majority of its residents voting yes to cityhood, thus converting the municipality into a city, in time for its 267th charter anniversary. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 243,322 people in a land area of 81.46 square kilometers.EtymologyDuring the earlier part of the Spanish colonial period, General Trias was often referred to as Las Estancias, which was once a part of Cavite el Viejo, the present-day Kawit. It was also called Malabon Grande. The name Malabon was speculated to have been derived from either the local term "maraming labong," due to the abundance of bamboo shoots in the area, which is a main ingredient in Filipino cuisine; or from "mayabong," referring to the trees and other plants once abundant in the place.At any rate, the first reference seems to be more probable because General Mariano Trías, a noted writer, adopted the nom de guerre "Labong," a word he often used in his writing and conversation. Grande, on the other hand, was affixed to the appellation because at the time, the place was a vast wilderness covering Sitio Tejero, frequently called by the revolutionary as Salinas, Sta. Cruz de Malabon or Malabon el Chico and Tierra Alta . When the town was made independent from Cavite el Viejo, it was finally called by its popular name San Francisco de Malabon, in honor of patron saint, Saint Francis of Assisi .
