Fort Paynawen, located at Barangay Parel, Iba, Zambales with its walls on the bank of Bancal River, was built as a defense against pirates who constantly molested the region. During the World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army initiated a destructive bombing which resulted in the annihilation of both civilians and American forces in the area. Later, they established a garrison at Poblacion, Iba.
