The development of modern-day Albay was largely the work of Jose Maria Peñaranda, who served from 1834-1843. A distinguished military engineer, he strengthened the province's forts and offshore defenses, built roads and bridges, helped construct buildings and promoted agriculture and industry. Queen Sofia of Spain personally unveiled the new life-size statue of Peñaranda on July 5, 2012.

This is a standing bronze colored statue of one of the celebrated Governor of the province. Claim to fame, structural developments to Legazpi city. This statue is beside an old canon too. #RP
