About Cavite City
Cavite City is a hook-shaped peninsula located at the northern tip of Cavite Province, lying 34 kilometers southwest of Manila and surrounded by three bays, Manila Bay, Bacoor Bay and Cañacao Bay. It was founded in 1571 by the Legazpi Expedition and became a Chartered City via a congressional fiat in 1940. It is the site of several important historical events foremost of which is as the site of the “Grandmother Event of the Philippine Revolution,” the spark that started it all – the Cavite Mutiny of 1872.
As one of the smallest cities in the country, the city faces a number of development challenges ranging from its topography, lying below sea level; its single entry and exit road; lack of available buildable area and land for development; inadequate source of local revenue; the proliferation of service-oriented establishments and lack of employment opportunities.
History of Cavite
The name Cavite evolved from the word “Kawit” or “Cauit,” meaning hook, referring to the shape of the land along the coast of Bacoor Bay. Early settlers, who were the Tagalogs, called it “Tangway,” meaning peninsula.. Chinese traders called it Keit. When the Spaniards came, they christened it as Cavite.
Other names associated with it were : Cavite la Punta meaning “Tip of Cavite”; Cavite Nuevo- New Cavite; Puerto de Cavite- Port of Cavite at the height of the world-famous Manila –Acapulco Galleon Trade; “Ciudad de Oro Macizo” meaning “City of Solid Gold”’ and “Tierra de Maria Santisima” because of the popularity of the Marian devotion in this place.
