Polangui traces its roots in 1584 when a Spanish friar, Baltazar de la Magdalena founded it shortly after the landing of the Spaniards in the remote part of Pantao in Libon, a neighboring municipality.
The 10-year construction of the parish church began in 1654 by Fr. Juan Bautista. Camilo Jacob, a photographer and resident of Polangui, was executed along with other Bicolanos in January 1897. A year later, the “Guardia Civil” in Naga City led by Don Elias Angeles mutinied against Spaniards. This ended the Spanish rule in the Bicol Region.
Polangui is easily accessible from Legazpi via public transportation. There are vans bound for Polangui at the Legazpi Grand Central Terminal. You can also ride on jeepneys plying the Legazpi to Polangui route. Another option are the buses bound for CamSur.
