History

Date Milestone
1670 Originally founded as a visita of Sta. Ana de Sapa under the jurisdiction of the Franciscans, Makati was first dismissed as "worthless" swamp land by the Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi in 1571.
1671 to 1899 Yet over the centuries, this small community would leave large imprints in social, economic and cultural history. The friars established two of the earliest churches in the Philippines - the Nuestra Señora de Gracia in Guadalupe and the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul - in Makati, drawing pilgrims from all over the country.
1900 At the turn of the century, the Americans established Fort McKinley in Makati.
1901 San Pedro de Macati, with a population of 2,500, was incorporated into the province of Rizal.

1950s to 1970s The first centrally planned community was established in the 1950s, and since the 1970s, Makati has been the undisputed financial and commercial capital, the once worthless swampland becoming prime real property.[citation needed]
1975 Makati was separated from Rizal province.

The community was one of the cradles of the revolt against Spanish colonial rule, and following the assassination of Ninoy Aquino in 1983, the epicenter of the protest movement against the dictatorial rule of President Ferdinand E. Marcos.
1986 Jejomar C. Binay was inaugurated as an acting mayor by Corazon C. Aquino after the People Power in EDSA and he was elected as the real mayor in 1987.
