Brief History

In the Spanish colonial era, the cities that we know now were classified as “barrios” by the Spanish, wherein the barrios of Cavite were named after galleon ships that traveled to the country. The names of these galleon ships were Maragondon, Minakaya (whose respective city is now called Binakayan), and Vacol (whose respective city is now called Bacoor). Initially, Bacoor, which now has many house and lot in Cavite, was a suburb of Palanyag (which is now known as Paranaque), in which Bacoor was then referred to as “Bacood,” which derived its meaning from the Tagalog word “bakod,” which means “fence.”

It is said that when the Spanish first arrived in Bacoor in the Philippines, they asked the locals what the name of the city was. The locals they were speaking to were building a fence at the time, and because of misunderstandings in communication, the locals thought that the Spanish were asking what they were building. As a result, the locals responded by saying “Bakood,” and the Spanish referred to the city as “Bakood” since then, later turning it into “Bacoor,” which is a city that has a good subdivision in Cavite.

Bacoor, which now has many house and lot in Cavite and decent subdivision in Cavite, was once the boundary between Silang and Cavite del Viejo (now known as Kawit) and was enveloped with bamboo groves extending from the places Zapote to Sitio Talaba at the time. The population of Bacoor grew as inhabitants of Palanyag migrated to Bacoor, including ilustrado families at the time. Founded in 1671, Bacoor would become the first main headquarters of the Philippine revolutionary government in 1898 during the fight for Philippine independence back in the colonial period prior.

At present, Bacoor is a first-class component city classified as a suburban area on the southeastern shore of Manila Bay. Bacoor has many house and lot in Cavite and is also called “Cavite’s Gateway to the Metropolis” since the Manila-Cavite Expressway starts in Bacoor and extends to Metro Manila.
