the Spain and Portugal
3. there is a possibility that the two GREAT CHRISTIAN
nations might go to war because of there rivalry.
POPE ALEXANDER VI
= he divides the world into two
=he said that the east is belonged to Portugal
The important of the treaty
1. An imaginary line was drawn from north to south
at the distance of 370leagues west of the cape
Verde islands . Lands to be discovered east of this
line would belong to Portugal and those went
would belong to Spain.
2. If Spanish ships discovered lands east of the
demarcation line said lands should be turned over
to Portugal and lands discovered by Portuguese
ships west of the line should tuned over to Spain.
3. No Portuguese ship shall be sent to lands belongs
to Spain & vice versa for the purpose of trading
Ferdinand Magellan- a Portuguese who went
to Spain to offer his service to the king. He had
been seen the battle in Malacca &Africa. The
king ignore him.
With the help of his ‘father in law & don Juan de
Aranda’ a man occupying a very high position in
the Spain the king was amazed he sent an
expedition in spice islands under the command
Magellan is known as a great Spanish explorer, but he was born Portuguese,
Fernão de Magalhães, into a family of minor nobility. He had a keen interest
in sailing and marine navigation. He worked for years for the Portuguese government
in an office that received and archived reports from Portuguese ships.
He went on several major voyages himself eventually becoming a captain.
He enjoyed some favor with the Portuguese monarch, Dom Manuel.
But, Magellan fell out of favor with Manuel primarily because of his own arrogance.
When King Manuel denied his repeated demands for an unprecedented increase
in his salary and, instead, fired him, Magellan defected to Portugal's arch-rival, Spain.
At the time, Spain and Portugal were the world's two competing super-powers.
In 1493, Pope Alexander VI decided to settle the arguments between them by
once-and-for-all dividing the world in half. By Papal authority, the eastern half went to Portugal,
and the western half to Spain. It seems like an equitable -- if arrogant -- solution.
But the Pope's decree didn't exactly specify where the line between the two was to be.
Magellan proposed to the Spanish king that he, Magellan, would be able to find the line the Pope
had described... and find it in such a way as to prove that the "Moluccas," the coveted Spice Islands
-- pretty much what we, today, call Indonesia – were within Spanish territory. The king agreed to
support Magellan's voyage.With five ships, San Antonio, Santiago, Trinidad, Victoria,
and Concepcion, and 280 men, Magellan's Armada de Moluccas departed in September 1519.

Zaragoza, Spain respected its provision.

The Legazpi Expedition
Since none of the expedition after Magellan from Loaisa
to Villalobos had succeeded in taking over the
Philippines, King Charles I stopped sending colonizers to
However, when Philip II succeeded his father to the
throne in 1556, he instructed Luis de Velasco, the
viceroy of Mexico, to prepare a new expedition – to be
headed by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, who would be
accompanied by Andres de Urdaneta, a priest who had
survived the Loaisa mission.RPCORPUZ 2013
•On February 13, 1565, Legaspi's expedition landed in
• After a short struggle with the natives, he proceeded
to Leyte, then to Camiguin and to Bohol.
• There Legaspi made a blood compact with the
chieftain, Datu Sikatuna as a sign of friendship.
• Legaspi was able to obtain spices and gold in Bohol
due to his friendship with Sikatuna.

as the first Filipino
metallurgist. He had

Establishment of Manila as Capital
• Legaspi establishes his government in
Manila and proclaims it the capital of the
Philippines, calling it the Insigne y
Siempre Leal Ciudad which means
"distinguished and ever loyal city".
• From the beginning of Spanish rule in 1565 to
1821, the Philippines was a dependency of
• The Mexican viceroy, in the name of King of
Spain administered the country.
• After 1821, the Philippines was directly
governed from Madrid.
The Sword and the Cross
• These two symbols are what
constituted the strategies or
tactics used by the Spaniards in
invading the Philippines. It made
the pacification of the natives
easier. The cross symbolizes
religion while the sword
The Blood Compact
• Through the blood compact of Magallanes
and Kulambo, Magallanes and Humabon, and
even Legazpi, Sikatuna and Gala, the natives
were enticed. This ritual symbolizes unity and
is done by the slashing of the wrist of both
parties and drinking the blood of the other
fused with wine. The giving of gifts of
Spaniards to the datus and their families were
also strategies to occupy the Philippines.
• Reduccion is the centralization of the Filipino
community where churches, convents, casa
real and plaza complexes can be found. Plazas
are where people gather when there are
events or celebrations like festivals. By using
this system, the Spaniards can easily monitor
the movements of Filipinos to prevent
protests and to collect the taxes easier. There
are also changes in the architectural designs
of infrastructures. RPCORPUZ 2013
Divide et Impera (Divide and Rule)
• In line with reduccion, the people were
categorized based on race and religion. For
the still rebellious places, entrada was
enforced. For those which are not, Spain
turned the citizens to soldiers and were made
to fight with their fellow Filipinos.
• The word “encomienda” comes from the
Spanish “encomendar” which means “to

reward for his services (Zaide)

• In July 26, 1523, King Charles V decreed that
Indians who had been pacified should
contribute a “moderate amount” in
recognition of their vassalage (Cushner 1979).
In theory the tribute or tax was collected from
the natives in order to defray the costs of
colonization and to recognize their vassalage
to the king of Spain.
The Political Structure
• Spain established a centralized colonial
government in the Philippines that was
composed of a national government and
the local governments that administered
provinces, cities, towns and
Political Structure in the Philippines during Spanish ColonizationRPCORPUZ 2013
The Royal Audiencia
Apart from its judicial functions, the Royal
Audiencia served as an advisory body to
the Governor General and had the power
to check and a report on his abuses. The
Audiencia also audited the expenditures
of the colonial government and sent a
yearly report to Spain.
The Polo or forced labor is another Spanish that
had created discontent among the Indios
during the Spanish times.
All men between sixteen and sixty years of age,
except chieftains and their elder sons, were
required to render labor of various forms for
40 days in the colony. This was instituted in
1580 and reduced to 15 days per year in 1884
In the first half of the 17th century,
Governor Sebastian Hurtado de Corcuera
begins collecting the bandala from the
natives. Bandala is an annual quota of
products assigned to the natives for
compulsory sale to the government.

and this led to the supremacy of the Church over
The Spanish authorities clustered the Filipino
population into village settlements where they
could more easily be instructed.
Spanish urbanization was centered in the city of
Manila, within a walled city called Intramuros.
• Peninsulares = Spaniards who grew up in Spain
• Insulares = Spaniards who grew up in the
• Spanish Mestizos = half-Spaniards
• Principalia = former Filipino tribe leaders before
the invasion of Spain (datus, rajahs,
maharlikas and others)
• Chinese Mestizos = half-Chinese
• Chinese = Chinese living in the Philippines
• ‘Indios’ = what the Spaniards derogatorily call
Education in the prehispanic period is informal.
The children are only taught by their parents
in vocations that can be used in their everyday
But with the coming of the Spaniards, education
was formalized and it focused on the doctrines
The subjects taught were catechism, reading
and writing in the dialect, music, arithmetic,
and trades and industries.
The Spanish aristocracy tried to distinguish
themselves from indios through the use of
language and level of education.
Higher education was established exclusively for
Spaniards and Filipinos, referring to those
born in the colony to Spanish parents.
Colleges and universities were closed to indios.
Colleges, which later, became universities, were
also established. Examples of these are:
University of Sto.Tomas, Ateneo de Manila,
San Juan de Letran, etc. Schools and nunnery
for women were also introduced.
School for boys were separated from that of the
girls. Courses such as Law, Medicine,
Engineering were limited only to males.
Females were given special education in the
colegio (regular schools for girls) and in the
beaterio (combined school and nunnery).

• Doctrina Christiana (1593)
• Doce Pares de Francia, Bernardo Carpio, Adela
at Florante written by Jose de la Cruz
• Lam-Ang by Pedro Bukaneg
• Florante at Laura by Francisco Baltazar
Development of infrastructure and public utilities
Ferrocaril de Manila: the only railway line in the
archipelago, which was constructed using
mainly Filipino labor. By 1892, five street car
service lines connected the primate city with
the suburbs with horse-drawn cars.
Development of infrastructure and public utilities
Puente Colgante (Quezon bridge): the first
suspension bridge in the Far East.
Public Lighting System: used with coconut oil as
fuel (1814). By 1893, the walled city
(Intramuros) and suburbs were already
powered by electricity, with the founding of
the La Electricista de Manila.
Through the galleon trade (derived from the
name of the ships used to transport goods
from one country to another), American-Asian
commerce flourished, but only a very few
privileged Spaniards were benefited.
Christianity is considered as Spain’s greatest and
lasting legacy in the country.
The Christianization (Roman Catholic) of the
Filipinos was really the most outstanding
achievement of the Spanish missionaries. And as
a result of the missionaries’ apostolic labors, the
Filipino people have become uniquely the only
Christian nation in the entire Asian world.
The Spaniards converted much of the
Philippines to Christianity except for
Mindanao and Sulu.
The striking resemblances between the pre-
colonial religion and Catholicism have made
the latter acceptable to the local inhabitants.

because it marked the first
