Romblon Islands Philippines
Romblon History

The early aborigines of Romblon were believed to be the Negritos from Panay and the Mangyans from Mindoro. It was in 1582 when the Loarca expeditionists came to the islands and named them collectively as “Lomlon.” A secular clergy administered the province until 1635.

In 1818 Romblon was annexed to the province of Capiz and made into a political and military station. The Americans, who came to rule in 1901, appointed a civil government to run the local affairs. About a century later, in 1917, Romblon became an autonomous province. But it was only in 1947 when this was promulgated by Republic Act. 38.


Travel Quotes:

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust

Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. Mary Ritter Beard
