Pili

(1.8/5 based on 35 reviews for 2 attractions)
Things to do: fun & games, theme parks
Pili is a first class municipality and the capital of the province of Camarines Sur in the Bicol Region of the Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 82,307 people, making Pili the second largest municipality of the province in terms of population. The municipality was classified as 1st class in terms of income classification in 2007. Pili is one of the municipalities comprising the metropolitan area of Metro Naga, serving as the center for agro-industrial development.HistoryThe name of the town has many disputed etymologies. The most popular is it might have been derived from the "Pili nut" (Canarium ovatum), the fruit which is among the symbols of the Bicol region. However, historians are convinced that it came from the Bicol word "pili", which means "to choose" or "the chosen" - probably the reason why the town was hailed as the provincial capital and not its neighboring Naga City.The first recorded history of Pili started during the promulgation of Christianity in the early 1770s by the Spanish missionaries. The early center of settlement in the town is located in "Binanuaanan" (from "banwaan" which means town) until missionaries transferred it to the present site of the town proper where the St. Raphael Archangel Church is located.
