A hundred years ago

General Trias was once known as San Francisco de Malabon, named after its patron saint, Saint Francis of Assisi, and the words labong (bamboo shoot) or mayabong (fertile), describing its land. It was a vast land that used to consist of Sta. Cruz de Malabon or Malabon el chico (present day Tanza), and Tejeros (present day Rosario).

It was a simple town that was owned by Spanish friars. The town was then renamed after the revolutionary leader, Mariano Trias, who was one of the leaders that led the first act of revolution, known as the “First Cry of Cavite,” against the Spaniards, where they captured the town’s official.
