    The Siege of Baler pertains to Philippine history when a group of Spanish soldiers defended a fortified church for almost a year -from July 1898 to June 1899 without knowing that Spain had given up sovereignty over the Philippines in December 1898 through The Treaty of Paris.

    On June 30, 1899, President Emilio Aguinaldo commended the besieged Spanish soldiers for their loyalty and gallantry. In accordance with Republic Act No. 9187, June 30 is declared to be Philippine-Spanish Friendship Day to commemorate the long history of friendship of the Philippines and Spain.

    As Baler celebrates this momentous event, this year will also mark the town of Baler’s 121st Anniversary simultaneous with La Camara’s 120th Anniversary.
