Poblacion is one of the oldest established barangays of Makati City. The Cluster 3 barangay was once called Pedro Makati before the World War II broke out. Being one of the eldest barangays made Poblacion a primary local government of the city. Aside from being a historical town, Poblacion is also a growing commercial district with the rise of several restaurants and coffee shops within the barangay.
Formerly known as San Pedro, Poblacion is a bustling town then and now. It is where the 500 year old San Pedro Church is located alongside the Makati Municipal Hall, Century City, Rockwell Center, and other modern real estate properties. Therefore, it is unarguably true that Poblacion has always been the center of political power of Makati.
