Keko,
Good points, good points. You are right that not many know that present day Taiwan was once known as La Formosa, a Spanish territory.

Formosa was administered by the colonial government in Manila. :)

Las Filipinas included not only present day Philippines, but what is now northern Borneo, Palau, Marianas, Guam, present day Taiwan.

hehe.

Let me also add:

The reason why the Spaniards colonized the Philippines was to use it as a staging ground for an invasion and conquest of Cathay (China).

The Spaniards christianized the Philippines, and developed Hispanic agrarian models in the islands as a way to cultivate the population and to improve on colonial techniques. The Spaniards succeeded, on the most part. However, the Spaniards abandoned their original plan in invading China after it was made obvious that Spain's overseas empire was already too large.

Philip II, the man who the Philippines is named after, made a conservative policy after Spain's disasterous defeat to the English in the late 16th century, after the Great Spanish Armada was defeated off the English Channel.

The loss of so many Spanish Galleons, clearly, was one of the reasons why Spain abandoned any hopes of invading and conquering China and the Malaccas (Spice Islands of present day Indonesia/Malaysia).

FYI. hehe
