Since time immemorial, Hagåtña or Agana has been the seat of government on Guam. Guam is also called Guahan in the language of the Chamoru People. The taotao tano' have named areas on Guam to correspond to parts of the human body. Our own Chamorro legends tell of Fu'una who used the parts of her dying brother's body to create the world. His eyes were the sun and the moon, his eyebrows were rainbows, his chest the sky and his back the earth. She then turned herself into a rock, from which all humans originated. Agana means blood. It is the life-blood of a larger body called Guahan or Guam. Hagåtña is the life-blood venue for government.

Fort Santa Agueda built in the 1800, affords a splendid view of Hagåtña and Hagåtña Bay. Government House (as seen in the photo), is the official residence of Guam's Governor and is adjacent to the fort's sprawling grounds. Guam's Unicameral Legislature of 15 elected senators is also situated in Hagåtña.

The history and natural beauty of Guam offer numerous sights of interest. The graceful remains of Spanish buildings, plazas, bridges, and the Site which the Seal of Guam was patterned after, may be seen in Hagåtña.

Agana is also the site of the Dulce Nombre de Maria Basilica from which Archbishop Anthony Apuron guides the Catholic churches on Guam.
