A brief history of Rosario, Batangas

According to historical records, the Christians who settled along the coast of Lobo are responsible for founding Rosario. Unfortunately, a group of pirates attacked the settlement during the Moro Wars that occurred in the 18th century.


Due to this, residents sought refuge in the forest and ravine on the north-west bank of the Kansahayan River (now the Municipality of Taysan) after being attacked by Moro or pirates. Here is where the town was moved to. However, the most violent Moro incursions reached Kansahayan in the latter part of the 18th century, when the conflict between the Moro and the Spanish was at its height. The Parish Priest was killed in one of these raids.


Residents of Kansahayan have made the decision to relocate. As they fled farther north, they held a novena and on the ninth day, the evacuees arrived at the bank of the Tubig ng Bayan (a river that begins in Lipa) at what is now Padre Garcia, where they decided to settle. The town's residents were so thankful for their patron, the Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish, that they built a stone cathedral to her south of the riverbank and named this town Santo Rosario.


During the Philippine-American War, Santo Rosario has completely destroyed. Capt. Daniel H. Boughton, an American cavalry commander, discovered the large spring at the base of Tombol Hill. He opted to move the town west of the spring in which e we can now find the present Rosario town center.
