The Philippine Merchant Marine Academy which was originally named Escuela Nautica de Manila
On this day, 200 years ago, 05 April 1820, the Philippine Merchant Marine Academy which was originally named Escuela Nautica de Manila was inaugurated. In its rich history, PMMA distinguished itself as an institution that continually raises its mast, going beyond expectations both in its mandate and its operations.
As we celebrate PMMA’s Bicentennial Founding Anniversary, we invite all alumni to see what she has become through the PMMA 360.
From opening classes in building at Calle Cabildo inside the Walled City of Intramuros, to Calle San Juan de Letran, to Calle Palacio, to Binondo, Pasay to Fort Bonifacio, Makati City, and then finally to a 602,292 square meters lot at Naval Station in San Narciso, Zambales, let us all reminisce and be in awe of how our alma mater has innovated and improved to produce highly qualified, competent and morally upright Filipino merchant marine officers.
