  • Santa Maria (/ˌsæntə məˈriːə/; Tagalog pronunciation: [ˈsɐnta mɐˈɾija] or [ˈsɐnta mɐɾˈja]), officially known as the Municipality of Santa Maria (Tagalog: ᜊᜌᜈ᜔ ᜈᜅ᜔ ᜐᜈ᜔ᜆ ᜋᜇᜒᜌ Bayan ng Santa Maria) (ISO: PH-BUL; PSGC: 031423000) is a first class highly urbanized municipality in the province of Bulacan, Philippines. Located on the banks of the Santa Maria River, 32 kilometres (19.9 mi) north of Manila, Santa Maria has been a thriving settlement for almost four centuries. It was founded as a barrio of Bocaue in the early 17th century until it was established as an independent municipality on November 26, 1793 by the Spanish friar Francisco Dominguez Javier OFM. Known before as Santa Maria de Pandi (Tagalog pronunciation: [pɐnˈde]), it is named under the patronage of the Immaculate Conception (also known as La Purisima Concepcion). Santa Maria's ancient core, Poblacion, is surrounded by four rivers and it still largely retains its 2.88 square-kilometer boundaries since the Spanish Colonial Era. Santa Maria is considered as an economic powerhouse in the region, with an area of 90.92 square kilometers, has a population of 256,454, it remains by a significant margin the most populous municipality in Central Luzon, as well as the 5th most populous municipality in the Philippines. Its downtown area, known as the Santa Maria Central Business District, which consists of three (3) highly urbanized barangays: Poblacion, Bagbaguin, and Santa Clara is one of the biggest and busiest commercial centers in the province as it accounts for more than half of all economic activities in the municipality. It attracts people from neighboring cities and municipalities and even as far as Visayas and Mindanao. It exerts a significant impact on commerce, industry, finance, religion, education, entertainment, healthcare, and transportation which all contributes to its prominence. It is also one of Bulacan's leading financial centers. According to the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) and the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC), Santa Maria's total bank deposits reached PHP 17.3 billion as of June 2016, this accounts for almost 75% of eastern Bulacan's total bank deposits and dwarfing other cities and municipalities in the country. Likewise, Santa Maria is the richest municipality in Bulacan with an assets totaling to PHP 873 million and revenues reaching an all-time high of PHP 533 million as of the 2015 report from the Commission on Audit (COA). It also hosts many government offices and industrial parks in the area. It currently enjoys a relatively high standard of living, with only 4% of the population living in poverty which is one of the lowest in the Philippines. From a little-known rustic area north of Metro Manila 20 years ago, to one of the most progressive municipality in the Philippines today, it is poised to become the next city in the region. In 2015, Santa Maria with a score of 42.1807 was ranked second among all municipalities in the country in the overall Municipalities Competitiveness Index issued by the National Competitiveness Council of the Philippines. Santa Maria is not only proud of its physical asset, political stability, and progressive economy, but also proud of having a son in the person of Jose Corazon de Jesus, the incomparable poet, popularly known as "Huseng Batute", who started composing his verse as a child. He gained national prominence as the other "King of Poet", next to Francisco Balagtas. Another proud son of Santa Maria is Francisco Santiago, a composer who left among his legacies, the immortal "Nasaan Ka Irog" and other famous kundiman songs. In the political arena, Santa Maria had produced three Bulacan governors: Jose Serapio (1900-1901), Trinidad Icasiano (1912-1916), Fortunato Halili (1943-1944 and 1946-1951); and two representatives of the second and fourth district: Rogaciano Mercado (1953-1992) and Reylina Nicolas (2001-2010).
