History

During the Spanish era, there was a woman who was fishing using hook, line and sinker along the bank of a river in “mantangingi”, now Barangay East Valencia while a native passed by to look after her basket full of fishes she caught and asked her in their dialect, “Abi’ La” (Hey Grandma) or “may I see, grandma”. Incidentally, a Spanish passed by and heard their dialogue. Suddenly, he thought that the name of the place was “Avila” considering that there is a province in Spain named Avila. From that incident, natives began to recall it and said, “Abi La”, but later spelled Avila.
