History of  Barangay Aguado

Barangay Aguado is one of the thirteen barangays of Trece Martires City. It has been named in honor of Luis Aguado, one of the martyrs sentenced to death by the Council of War during the Spanish Regime on September 11, 1896 and was executed on the following day. Aguado was given its name upon the approval of Republic Act 981 on May 24, 1954.

            Barangay Aguado is formerly known as “Fiscal Mundo”. The barangay is the 5th largest barangay in Trece Martires City which is subdivided into 11 puroks with a total area of 298 hectares.

            Luis Aguado, 33, was one of the Thirteen Martyrs of Cavite who were arrested by the Spaniards as an aftermath of the uprisings in San Francisco de Malabon (now General Trias), Noveleta and Cavite el Viejo (now Kawit) on August 31, 1896. Occurring after the other within a period of five hours, 10 A.M. to 3 P.M., these three armed incidents constituted the “First Cry of Cavite,” the local counterpart of the “Cry of the Pugad Lawin” on August 23.
