The Town of Del Gallego

1 April 2005

Historical Background

Del Gallego is the town on the northern most tip of Camarines Sur. This is where the Quirino Highway road meets the first town of Quezon province, Tagkawayan.

Little is known about the history of the town of Del Gallego, Camarines Sur.  Information taken from the old residents revealed that in the latter part of the Spanish regime, this town was a crude fishing village north of Ragay Gulf, at the mouth of Kilbay River and was named after the river. The Gulf abounded with fish and other sea products. A little further to the north was a virgin forest. This forest attracted much the attention of a strapping young Spanish traveler, Don Juan del Gallego from the little town of Villaviciosa in Northern Spain. Old residents of Del Gallego further claimed that he came from the south (Iriga) with his lone batel (a small merchant boat), trading in wild products and almaciga. The first lumber mill that Don Juan erected was in Sitio Pinagdapian, five kilometers up Kilbay River. The town folks left their fishing livelihood for whatever fortune they can reap from the new industry. Others went on with their farming. In a few years, this lumber camp rose to a progressive community. Don Juan led the people in most social activities. He erected a school and a chapel. He even organized a village orchestra. By this time he married a native of the village, the former Potenciana Ubante. He was 37 and his bride, 17.

In 1927, the lumber mill was now expanding and needed a bigger area. It was moved to Danawin, the original name of Del Gallego Town. This moved made the lumber yard a bustling little community. Traders, merchants, businessmen and just plain folks looking for jobs came to the little baranggay (village).

A Town Was Born

In 1936 Don Juan del Gallego succeeded in securing the help of Camarines Sur 1st district Assemblyman Francisco Celebrado. Assemblyman Celebrado worked for a passage of a bill in the National Assembly separating then Barrio Danawin from the town of Ragay to make it a new town. In the later part of the same year, President Manuel L. Quezon through Executive Order No. 56, dated October 5, 1936, proclaimed the barrio as a regular municipality. In December 1936, the town folks witnessed the inauguration of the Municipality of Del Gallego (named after its founder and benefactor).

The following year, the new municipality was honored by the presence of no less than the president of the Philippines, President Manuel L. Quezon. The president inaugurated the southern line of the then Manila Railroad Company by driving the Golden Nail to a piece of pile, marking the meeting point of the south and north construction. An impressive railroad marker now stands a half kilometer from the town proper to mark this historic event.

In August 31, 1941, the Grand Old Man Of Bicol, founder of Del Gallego Town, and great benefactor of the people expired in his home in Manila, leaving his town mates with a good example of what patience and industry was all about. “He will always be remembered for having built with his own funds the town hall, the Central School and many other beautiful places in the community,” said an old timer.

Location and Political Subdivisions

Del Gallego is one of the 35 municipalities of the province of Camarines Sur. It is bounded by the Municipality of Tagkawayan, Quezon, in the northwest by Ragay Gulf and on the southwest by the Municipality of Ragay, Camarines Sur.

The municipality has 14 public schools, 2 private, 3 government owned secondary schools, two private secondary schools and one tertiary private school.

    I am proud of your work in preserving your identity and roots in a town like yours. It is indeed a very noble project not all towns in the Philipines has it. I believe in preservation of history, be it a town, a family name or anything that will remind our connection to our heritage. my only comment you miss is a Coat of Arm of the Del Gallegos, someone should trace your genealogy and I’m sure it is available. I have been to Spain and they can check your family name and your Coat of Arm diagram is produced in a click of the computer. Congratulations.

    • 13 September 2005 16:26

      Thank you, ML! Your compliment is much appreciated.

      On the coat of arms: unfortunately, unlike the Del Gallegos who have actually documented their roots to a Spaniard, I still have not done the same for the Veluz’s. I did find the family name’ coats of arms on-line but we don’t have the right to use them unless I have proof of lineage. I am diligently working on that though. :)

      Hi Paul John. I am trying to look deeper into the Veluz roots and I am trying to muster up more info on their connection to Luisiana, Laguna. It would be create if you could share what you know of your lineage. Thanks!

    Greetings to the Veluz Clan !!! As a child, I lived in Del Gallego with my parents. I still remember going to Quilbay with my siblings. We also used to play near the water where the was a sunken ship. I plan to visit the town in the future, but don’t know for sure what type of accomodations are available. I look forward to revisiting my childhood town.

    I enjoyed your blog and appreciate the time and effort that went into the creation of it.
    I am a native of Tagkawayan, currently residing away from my hometown. Last time I was back there was March 2008 to sever the last remaining link I have with the town. Even if Tagkawayan was but just a brief mention in your creation, it gave me chills up my spine and brought back childhood memories.

    I recognize the Veluz last name – are you part of the family who owns a property atop a small hill between Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and the Municipal Hall?

    Again, thank you for the work you do.

    I my self connot go along without looking back to my home town del gallego. I together with my family (Villota) and the origin of me as Ubante in my mother’s side, would like to decleare our being one with the rest, having that space of my hearth dedicated only to this town. And in the words of my deceased mother,and i quote “mananatili tayong taga del gallego hanggang naka tindig ang lumang bahay ng pamilya, at sa oras na ibenta ang bahay, magiging dayuhan tayo sa ating sariling bayan,kayat hinding hindi dapat na ibenta ang bahay sa gallego. this was her last words, and so it will stay. Kaya po isinigigaw ko, ako po ay isang GALLEGOHIN…. Mabuhay po tayong lahat

    Hi, It’s fantastic to see the achievements of my great grand father Don Juan Del Gallego. At the age of 10, I left the Philippines Islands bound for Madrid Spain back in 1978 and promised myself to one day visit the town and that time has arrived as I will be visiting Philippines by end of September. ‘Muchas gracias a todos por haber hecho lo que hoy se considera un buen lugar para vivir..el pueblo Del Gallego’.

    Saludos
    Carlos Juan Marcelo Del Gallego

      i haven’t seen del gallego since the early 1990s; but i am sure it is very different from what you saw in 1978. the maharlika highway was a welcome change, i hear.

      thanks for visiting the site, carlos!

    Kagagaling ko lang ng Del Gallego yesterday thru the invitation of father and son, Mr. Bienvenido and Rosanno (Sonny) Veluz. Maganda yong lugar, malamig ang hangin at sariwa ang mga isda galing ng dagat and the people were very accommodating. I would like to thank them and their cousins for their hospitality. I hope to visit it again someday.
