Note: The name Baclaran came from the word “baklad”, a piece of fishing gear used by fishermen in the past. It is a rattan fence used to segregate fingerlings from the bigger fishes during the time when the Baclaran River and the Manila Bay were still used to breed fish. In the past, the place was famous for its baklads therefore people started calling it the “bakladan”, which later on became “Baclaran” [Source: Wikipilipinas.org].

Baclaran is well known to be a pilgrimage site of the Marian devotees of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. Every Wednesday, they flock to the church to attend the novena. It has been declared as a National Shrine or Pambansang Dambana ng Ina ng Laging Saklolo.
