Iba

Historic Sites
Iba is a first class municipality and the capital of the province of Zambales Philippines. According to the 2010 Philippine census, it has a population of 46,761 people. It is the second largest provincial capital in terms of land area in Central Luzon Region after Tarlac City. Iba is the birthplace of former Philippine President Ramon Magsaysay. With a continuously growing number of commercial establishments, banks, and financial institutions in Iba, it contends among the most competitive municipalities in Philippines, and is pushing forward towards a progressive city.HistoryIba was founded by the order of Augustinian Recollect priest in 1611 as the village of Paynauen. The early inhabitants of the town are called Zambales. They were later joined by the Ilocanos who migrated to the town which resulted in intermingling of customs and traditions. The Aeta people settled in the hinterlands and the majority of them dwelled in the Mount Pinatubo area. In 1860, the administration of the town was turned over to the Dominican priests until the civil government came to power. There are no available records as to when Paynauen was renamed to Iba.The municipality was named after the sour fruit "Iba", commonly known as kamias, which is abundant in the place. Local folklore talks about the Spaniards who came to the town asking the name of the place, the natives shouted "Iba, Iba" thinking that the man was asking what they were eating. From then on, the place was called Iba.
