List of Barangays in the Philippines
The barangay system is what makes the Philippines the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. Each barangay has its captain and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the registered voters.

The Philippines' self-governing system before the Spanish inquisition was based on a myriad of groups of people scattered throughout the populated islands, mostly ruled by a tribal leader. These groups of people were called “Barangays“, a Malay term for community.

Under the Spanish rule, the same governing concept was applied to their Filipino subjects, and this was called the “barrio” system, or wards ( neighborhoods ). Under the present system of government of The Philippines, the barangay was re-integrated , and is an important part of a city or province’s make up.

Every barangay has a unique and special makeup of its place, its people, and its customs, making them a challenging discovery for the more adventurous spirit. There is intense competition amongst each barangay as to which one organizes the best fiesta, beautification projects, tourist attractions, cuisine, and many other cultural aspects. We at will provide an avenue for each barangay to showcase their individuality, making them an integral part of our global community and economy.
