Bustos (Bulacan) Sentenaryo celebration
5/15/2017

On Friday, May 5, ​Spanish Ambassador Luis Calvo attended the commemoration of the centenary of the establishment of the city of Bustos (in the Province of Bulacán) as an independent municipality and the sesquicentennial of its constitution as a parish.

 

The city of Bustos owes its name to the Asturian nobleman José Pérez del Busto, also known as José Pedro de Bustos, a mining engineer who led the armed resistance in this region against British invasion in 1762 during the Seven Years´ War.

 
The celebrations were presided over by the Mayor of Bustos,  Arnel F. Mendoza, and attended by various provincial and local authorities such as Bulacan Representative Gavini Pancho.
 
 
The commemoration included the inauguration of a clock tower with a sculpture of the Asturian nobleman erected in a central part of the city.
 Ambassador Calvo handed over to the Mayor of Bustos gifts sent by the Mayor of Villaviciosa, the land of birth of José Pérez del Busto, including a coat of arms of the city, a facsimile of the Carta Puebla (Town Charter) granted by King Alfonso X on the occasion of its foundation (see photo) as well as a USB with the digitized copy of various documents relating to José Pedro del Busto from the Archivo General de Indias, among others.
