Profile , Tagline and Official Seal
Dae ko lilingawan
an sakong banwang ginikanan,
Kun saen an gabos
nagpoon: pagtubod, pag-uswag, karahayan asin pagkamoot.
Digdi ko itinananom
an sakong mga ugat,
siring man, digdi ako matalubo.
I shall not forget
began: faith, progress,
kindness and love.
In this land is where
I planted my roots,
here, I will bloom.

The History of Legazpi City
Legazpi started as a barangay called “Sawangan” (the present location of Legazpi Port). Its inhabitants were mostly fishermen and farmers. In 1587, Franciscan friars of the “Doctrina of Cagsawa” began to convert the settlement to Christianity; in 1616, they transformed it into a separate town and parish called “Albay.” Its first parish priest built a small chapel and established the “Mission de San Gregorio Magno de Sawangan.”
