Discover Doña Remedios Trinidad: Bulacan’s Best-Kept Secret

Doña Remedios Trinidad, officially known as the Municipality of Doña Remedios Trinidad (Bayan ng Doña Remedios Trinidad in Tagalog), is a first-class municipality located in the province of Bulacan, Philippines. With a population of 28,656 people according to the 2020 census, it is often referred to as “Bulacan’s Last Frontier” due to its pristine natural environment and reputation as one of the least explored towns in the province.

The town was named in honor of Doña Remedios T. Romualdez, the mother of the former first lady Imelda Romualdez Marcos, who hailed from the town of Baliuag. Baliuag has since been elevated to city status since 2022, further highlighting the historical significance of Doña Remedios Trinidad.


On September 13, 1977, the municipality of Doña Remedios Trinidad was established through Presidential Decree No. 1196 by Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos. This newly created municipality encompasses seven barangays, which were originally part of Angat, Norzagaray, and San Miguel in Bulacan. These barangays include Pulong Sampaloc and Camachile from Angat, Bayabas and Kabayunan from Norzagaray, and Talbac, Camachin, and Kalawakan from San Miguel.


Doña Remedios Trinidad, the largest municipality in Bulacan, spans nearly one-third of the province’s total land area. It is strategically situated on the southern fringes of the majestic Sierra Madre mountain range, offering breathtaking views and a serene atmosphere. The municipality takes pride in encompassing three significant conservation areas: the Angat Watershed Forest Reserve, the Biak-na-Bato National Park, and the Doña Remedios–General Tinio Watershed Forest Reserve. Together, these conservation areas cover a remarkable 327.3 km2 of publicly accessible land, providing ample opportunities for nature enthusiasts and adventurers alike to explore and appreciate the region’s rich biodiversity.
With its rich history, stunning landscapes, and commitment to environmental conservation, Doña Remedios Trinidad stands as a testament to the beauty and allure of the Philippines’ natural wonders.
