When it comes to component cities in the province of Cavite, most people would think of Imus, Dasmariñas, and Bacoor. One of the component cities in Cavite is Trece Martires. Trece Martires is also the de facto capital of Cavite because most provincial government offices are located in this city.
Trece Martires City was named after the thirteen martyrs of Cavite, a group of patriots in Cavite that the Spanish government executed for cooperating with the Katipunan during the Philippine revolution. Trece Martires has 13 barangays named after each martyr.
If you think of moving outside of Metro Manila, Trece Martires City is an excellent place for relocation. Here are some reasons you should consider living in Trece Martires, Cavite.
Trece Martires is a historical town
The name of Trece Martires City itself is a historical one. However, the city had a colorful history before it became the city that Caviteños know and love today. Trece Martires City was first known as the barrio of Quintana and was still a part of Tanza. Migrants from Indang, Amadeo, General Trias, and Tanza relocated during the 19th century.
From the early 1900s, Trece Martires was subdivided into cattle ranches and sugar farms, and during the 1940s, education in this barrio was neglected until the government opened its first public school. But this was not enough because the second public school was not opened until 1945 but was closed due to a lack of teachers.
During the post-war era, Trece Martires was a place filled with crime because of the lack of transportation, education, and communication until it was declared a city by the late president Ramon Magsaysay in 1954. It is now one of the second safest cities in Cavite, only below Tagaytay, according to the Cavite Ecological Profile of 2020.
Trece Martires is Cavite’s provincial capital
In 1977, late president Ferdinand Marcos transferred the provincial capital of Cavite from Trece to Imus. Even today, the city of Imus is still the capital of Cavite on paper. However, Trece Martires hosts almost all provincial offices of the province up to this day.
Here are the offices that you can find in the Provincial Capitol Compound of Trece Martires City:
- Office of the Provincial Governor
- Office of the Provincial Vice Governor
- Provincial Health Office
- Provincial Veterinary Office
- Provincial Engineering Office
- Provincial Legal Office
- General Services Office
- Provincial Population Office
- Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office
- Provincial Library
- Provincial Public Employment Service Office
- Bureau of Internal Revenue
Other offices are not included on this list, but here are some offices that the general public can easily access when living in Trece Martires.
Trece Martires is one of the cleanest cities in Cavite
Trece Martires perhaps is one of the greenest compared to other component cities. Yes, it is a city in terms of population and economic viewpoint, but trees still surround this city. This is because Trece Martires is surrounded by two rural municipalities, the towns of Naic and Indang.
