Brief Historical Background

The Municipality of Antequera was a progressive barrio named AGAD, part and parcel of the old town of Maribojoc. Because of the growing population and income of barrio Agad, the residents filed a petition to the Spanish government to become a separate and independent Municipality.
A superior decree signed by Governor General Romualdo Crespo on March 17, 1876, officially created the Municipality of Antequera, the name derived from a City in Spain, the birthplace of Governor General Crespo. Mr. Simeon Villas was appointed the first Capitan Municipal (Municipal Mayor) of the town. On August 13,1880, the Parish of Antequera was officially organized. The first Parish Priest was Rev. Fr. Casto Sesma, with the Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, as Patron Saint.
