GARCHITORENA ....The Living Paradise
What's the story behind?
According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 24,825 people.
The original location of Garchitorena is said to be found at the mouth of the Pambuhan River but it was later transferred to Binanwahan primarily because of frequent attacks of the Moros.
Soon, a rich man by the name of Don Andres Garchitorena, who hailed from Tigaon town and owned in this place a vast portion of the land area, persuaded the townspeople to plant abaca. He later established an abaca processing plant which started the establishment of this coastal settlement named after its founder Don Andres Garchitorena.
Garchitorena was named after its founder and discoverer, Don Andres Garchitorena. He came from Tigaon. He was a member of Emilio Aguinaldo's Hong Kong Junta during the Spanish American War. He became the governor of then Ambos Camarines in 1919. He is the father of Don Mariano Garchitorena, Secretary of Agriculture and Commerce and also Governor of Camarines Sur.
