The City of Trece Martires (Filipino: Lungsod ng Trece Martires) is a third-class city in the province of Cavite, Philippines. The city serves as the seat of government of the Cavite, where many of the provincial government offices are located. According to the 2007 census, it has a population of 90,177 people in a land area of 49.10 square kilometers. It is named after the Thirteen Martyrs of Cavite, who were executed by the Spaniards on September 12, 1896. Trece Martires City is strategically located at the heart of the Province of Cavite. Its major source of income is real property taxes. Agriculture has long been neglected in favor of commercialism and industrialization. With its 14.75% growth-rate, the projected population by 2010 is 110,000. The major cause of this ballooning population is in-migration (which is gladly facilitated by the LGU even though it is not sustainable, in order to support the incumbents for the upcoming 2010 elections). The most noteworthy fact about this city is its cleanliness and the absence of any form of gambling. The city has been awarded in the fields of nutrition, health services, cleanliness, literacy, education and social services. With its small land area and its income, the city is fairly manageable in terms of public works, infrastructure and provision of basic services to the residents. The city government provides the following assistance to its indigent: financial, medical, emergency, school fees and burial expenses. It has extensive programs for the elderly, solo parents, out-of-school youths and mothers. One of its most admirable programs is their blood donation activity every March, May, September and December; Balik Eskwela (school supplies distribution to all public elementary and highschool students); clean and green; revitalization of agricultural lands, high school and college scholarship and their livelihood programs. These programs all look good on paper, but are mundane in actuality. Brief History
