Baguio City

Summer Capital of the Philippines
Early history
The region around Baguio was first settled
primarily by the Ibalois and the
Kankanaeys. In the nearby town of La
Trinidad, Benguet, Spaniards established a
zeus or military garrison, but Kafagway,
as Baguio City was once known, was
barely touched.
Baguio City was established by the
Americans in 1900 at the site of an Ibaloi
village known as Kafagway. The name of the
city is derived from the word bagiw in
Ibaloi, the indigenous language of the
Benguet Region, meaning 'moss'. The city is
at an altitude of approximately 1,610 metres
(5,280 ft) in the Luzon tropical pine forests
ecoregion conducive to the growth of mossy
plants and orchids.
