History[edit]

Originally a part of San Francisco de Malabon called Estancia, Santa Cruz de Malabon became a separate town in 1770, and then again as an independent municipality in 1910. The name was changed to Tanza by virtue of Act No. 2390 by Cavite Representative Florentino Joya (1912-1916).

Tanza is the place where Emilio Aguinaldo took oath as the first president of the revolutionary government of the Philippines. It is also the home town of Felipe G. Calderon, the man who drafted the first Philippine constitution.

Tanza is the second Local Government Unit in the province which banned the use of plastic bags and polystyrene. This ordinance took effect on January 1, 2012.
