The Spaniards gave the name "La Pampanga" to the place. They gave it this name because of the early natives whom they found living next to the river banks. The province served as the country’s capital from 1762 to 1764 during the British invasion of Manila. The word “pampang” literally means “river bank”. Pampanga was founded in 1571 making it the first Spanish province in Luzon and the second in the Philippines. It was created next to Cebu which was founded by the Spaniards in 1565. The Province is regarded as the culinary capital of the country.

The province is composed of nineteen (19) municipalities and three (3) cities. Among these cities, one is highly urbanized city and the other two (2) are component cities. Pampanga’s terrain is generally flat with just one distinct mountain - the Mount Arayat. This lone mountain is accompanied by a notable body of water - the Pampanga River. Porac is the largest municipality in the province while the smallest is the town of Santo Tomas.

The locals maybe referred to as Kapampangans or Capampañgans, Pampangos, or Pampangueños. Pampanga is one of the eight provinces that revolted against the Spaniards and because of that it is honored as one of the eight rays of the sun in the Philippine flag. It has also produced two (2) presidents, three 3) chief justices, a senate president and the first Filipino cardinal. This feat gives its residents a feeling of grandeur. Numerous condominiums and subdivisions are now available in the province to serve the ever increasing populace.
