Santa Ana, Manila has flourished over the years from being a center of rich culture and heritage to becoming a district of convenience and modernity. Over the district of Santa Ana, some earliest evidence of advanced social and cultural developments have been unearthed which dates back to around 900 to 1000 years. During the Spanish period, the affluent families of the society chose the place to build their homes near the idyllic Pasig River. The place is known for its architecturally significant heritage, led by its famous Santa Ana Church, joined by Plaza Hugo, an array of historic ancestral houses, and the three-century old image of the "Nuestra Señora de los Desamparados de Manila". Santa Ana is also replete with archeological possessions and has notably been classified as a “histo-cultural heritage/overlay zone” by a Manila City Council ordinance. Needless to say, Santa Ana is the place in the Metro where timeless beauty, elegant heritage, and modern innovation all seamlessly meet.
Located strategically in the boundary of three major cities in Metro Manila --Makati, Mandaluyong, and San Juan, the area is a wise location for many businesses, and most importantly, for residential communities. Every corner and avenue of the district has easy access to various modes of land transportation 24/7, going to different parts of the Metro, making it one of the most convenient places to live in.
