Marikina


General Info

Known as “The Shoe Capital of the Philippines,” Marikina is one of the most progressive cities in the country today. Located along the Eastern border of Metro Manila, it is considered as one of the healthiest and livable cities in the Asia-Pacific.

The city of Marikina is bordered by the following:

Quezon City – west

Pasig City and Cainta, Rizal – south

Antipolo City – east

San Mateo, Rizal – north

History of Marikina

The Augustinians were the first to settle at the valley, followed by the Jesuits in 1630. In April 1630, Fray Pedro de Arce, who was the apostolic ruler of the Archbishop of Manila during that time, entrusted the supervision and ecclesiastical control of the area to the Jesuits. In 1787, it was officially declared as a town under the Spanish government, and was given the name Mariquina.

From 1898 to 1899, Mariquina was designated as the capital of the province of Manila. This is the period when Emilio Aguinaldo, who became the nation’s first President, declared the Philippine Independence in Kawit, Cavite. When the Americans took over the country, the name Mariquina was changed to Marikina, and became a part of the newly-created province of Rizal. On November 7, 1975, Marikina, along with the 13 western towns of Rizal, became part of the Metropolitan Manila Area by virtue of Presidential Decree No. 824.

The city steadily established its shoe-making trade (please scroll down for the list of shoe manufacturers in Marikina). Spearheaded by Don Laureano Guevara, also known as Kapitan Moy, during the late 1800s, Marikina is now famous for its world-class quality footwear. The booming show trade is not without its downsides; the numerous industrial plants polluted the once-pristine Marikina River.

In 1992, under the strict leadership of then-Mayor Bayani Fernando, Marikina was transformed into a beautiful and industrialized urban city that attracted the interests of real estate developers. Marikina was named as a first class city by virtue of Republic Act No. 8223 on December 8, 1996.

Marikina’s Business and Tourism

Marikina has become a multi-awarded city. It was first named as The Cleanest and Greenest City in the Philippines. The city was also considered as one of the Most Healthiest and Livable City in the Asia-Pacific region. In a span of just 16 years, Marikina has already earned more than 200 awards and recognitions, making the city ideal not only for residential living, but also for business and commerce.

The emergence of commercial establishments such as SM Marikina has made the city more profitable than ever, coupled with the presence of the LRT 2 system located along Marcos Highway. This has made the city more reachable for people who reside in Manila.
