History

Before the Spaniards arrived in this area, the natives commonly called their village as “Naga”. Naga are local trees widely grew in the area. Practically, the residents found the importance to utilize the trees. As such, they built their houses mainly made of Naga Tree. In their daily lives, they usually use parts of the trees for their fences, firewood and in many household activities. When the Spaniards came, most of the areas where natives regularly lived were named similar to the names of the saints. Eventually, there happened when their nearby barangay (barrio) had a social gathering or celebration called “barrio fiesta” in honor of their patron saint. Similarly, Naga residents were interested to have their own fiesta; hence, they commonly gathered and decided to celebrate their own annual barrio fiesta every March 19 with Sr. San Jose as their Patron Saint– the husband of Virgin Mary and the father of Jesus Christ. Consequently, when the villagers knew that, long time ago, Jesus Christ was born and his family lived in a place called “Nazaret”, they formally changed the name of their barrio from Naga to Nazaret.
