Caloocan is also divided in 188 different barangays, each one more unique and special all on it’s own. Known for being safe, friendly and full of fun-filled activities, Caloocan is a city that you must visit if you’re ever in the Philippines.
Cities and Districts of Caloocan
Towards the finish of the eighteenth century, the fishermen of Aromahan climbed the slopes to open some specific estates in Caloocan. Despite the rough terrain of the slopes, some type of agribusiness were then conceived; and these Caloocan fishermen moved toward becoming ranchers. In 1815, Caloocan was isolated from Tondo and turned into an autonomous region. Caloocan’s unique region stretched out to the lower regions of Marikina, San Mateo and Montalban in the east, Tinejeros, Tanza and Tala Rivers in the North; San Francisco del Monte, Sampalok, Sta. Cruz as well as the border of Tondo right back in the South; and Dagat-Dagatan or Aromahan in the West. Caloocan was a piece of history, and also went well on it’s way to becoming a town with progress written in its roots.
The historic City of Caloocan is known to be one of the more popular focal points of practical monetary development throughout the Philippines, which are also inhabited by peace-cherishing and dynamic locals, living in a safe and environmentally adjusted condition, served by a legislature that puts the needs of both the country, it’s tourists and growth above anything else.
