Puerto Princesa City
Legend has it that PUERTO PRINCESA CITY was named after a princess-like maiden who roamed around the place on certain nights of the year.
On the other hand, the practical people attribute the name to the geographical advantages of the place as a seaport – with a depth that can accommodate any size of shipping –
a royal haven for vessels during the Spanish colony. Today, the City has gained the distinction of being a model city – in cleanliness, environmental protection and conservation,
and local governance in general.
