The Spaniard Reverend Miguel Benavides is from a noble clan in Carrion de los Condes. He became a Dominican and joined in the first Dominican mission to the Philippines (1587). He went on to become the bishop of Nueva Segovia (then centered in Cagayan but now in Vigan) and eventually the 3rd archbishop of Manila. He founded University of Santo Tomas in 1611. UST is the oldest and largest university in Manila.
