Veinte Reales is one of the constituent barangays in the city of Valenzuela, Metro Manila in the Philippines. The barangay is home to industrial factories of wire, fishball, packaging and rubber products.[1]


The origin of the name Veinte Reales came from a legend that their ancestors paid "veinte reales" or twenty reales (2.50 pesos) for the land to the Spaniards during the Spanish occupation of the Philippines. Another legend was that there was a magic well that contains delicious water that can quickly heal any sickness. But in order for you to drink it, you must pay Veinte Reales (20 reales).
