This Week’s Milestones: June 24-30, 2018

June 26, 1783 Batanes, the smallest province in the country, was annexed to the Philippines by the Spanish colonial state. Before the province was added to the Philippines, the locals, known as Ivatan, agreed to become subjects of the king of Spain in 1773. Batanes was then called Provincia de la Concepcion. It remained under Spanish rule until September 1898. Batanes, which is made up of 11 islands and is the least populated province in the country, celebrates its founding day every June 26.
