About Paranaque and its History


The City of Paranaque is located in the southern portion of Metro Manila. Today, Parañaque is a bustling, modern city, with shopping malls, Starbucks chains, and casinos, among others. The city continues to grow rapidly.

Brief History

Because Paranaque’s proximity is close to the sea, trading with Chinese, Indians, Indonesians, and Malayans used to be a main source of income for the residents. It used to be called “Palanyag” which generally means “my beloved”, as how the locals felt about their hometown. Other stories claim that Parañaque was derived from the phrase "para na aque", the term people would say when they wished to get down from the horse-drawn carriage (calesa).
