The barangay system is what makes the Philippines, the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. Each barangay has its Chairman (captain) and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the community registered voters.

  • As of April 12, 2012 according to the NSCB (National Statistical Coordination Board), there are 42,027 Barangays in the Philippines.
  • They are listed here in Alphabetical Order. Each barangay has its own webpage.
  • If you do not know the name of the barangay, just click on the Municipality or City that it is in, you will find the list of barangays in the specified city or municipality you are looking for.
  • Help update the webpage of the barangay you grew up in. Each page that we provide is an interactive page whereby any registered user may edit or update.
  • We recently created Photo Galleries for the Barangays, Municipalities, Cities and Provinces. Every picture uploaded may now be categorized for their specific community. Here is an example: The Photo Gallery of barangay Tumaga, Zamboanga City.
