MUNICIPALITY OF ANDA

Originally, the municipality was called Quinale due to the characteristic land formation of sand, gravel and corals that filed layer after layer amassed by seawaves since time immemorial.Once a barrio of Guindulman, it was made into a municipality on March 12, 1875 and was renamed “Anda” which means walking and moving (to posterity).
