History of Pagsanjan

The real history of Pagsanjan began in 1668 when it emerged as a town. Years before that time, it was a barrio of Lumban. Across three centuries, it has survived all natural and man-made cataclysms, including the Philippine Revolution and World War II.

During the long interim of 170 years (1668-1858) Pagsanjan was the capital of Laguna. Despite the loss of the provincial capital ship, the town is still great because of the achievements of its many-splendored people.
