As one of the cities included in the “Clean and Green Hall of Fame” by the Philippine government, the city of Las Piñas is a rapidly urbanizing district in the National Capital Region (NCR). Encompassing a land area of approximately 12.62 square miles and a population of 552,573 (based on the 2015 Census), it is one of the sixteen (16) districts that make up the capital region of the country.
Previously a fishing port, this coastal town used to be a part of Cavite and was mostly known as a salt producer especially during the Spanish era. It was also during this period that the famous Bamboo Organ, which can still be found today inside the St. Joseph Parish Church, was built.
In 1901, the city was separated from Cavite and was included in the newly created Rizal Province. Then, just two years later, it was decided that the city would become a part of Parañaque instead. It was actually only in 1997 when the city officially became a city of Metro Manila.
From a small town that used to only have 1,200 dwellers, the city of Las Piñas is now one of the most advanced and progressive cities nationwide. It was honored with the prestigious 500 Roll of Honour of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), making it the very first municipality in the country to earn international recognition. It has been distinguished as one of the most peaceful cities for three years straight. All these achievements have given it the nickname: The City of Love and Progress.
The location of the city may be in the southern part of the capital, but it can still be easily accessed via major roads, such as:
Circumferential Road 5 Extension, more commonly referred to as the C-5 Extension
