Tuy is an upland municipality. It is located on the western part of Batangas Province, about 98 kilometers from Manila and around 55 kilometers from Batangas City. It is bounded on the north by the Municipality of Nasugbu with Palico River as its boundary, on the west by the Municipality of Lian with Mount Talipusngo as its boundary, on the east by the Municipalities of Nasugbu, Balayan and Calaca with Mount Batulao as boundary, and on the south by the Municipality of Balayan with Munting Tubig and Molino River as boundaries.
During the Spanish period, Tuy was still a part of Balayan, the former capital of Batangas Province. Tuy became an independent town only on August 12, 1866 with Magahis, Guinhawa, Mataywanac, Lumbangan, Luntal, Bayudbud, Toong, Bolboc, Acle, Putol, Malibu, Sabang, Talon, Dao and Palincaro as its barrios. The following story can be read in one of the old history books in the Province of Batangas. “Senior Salvador Ellio…..1866 Gobernador de la provincia (Batangas) es de Tuy, España, asu nomber y memoria fue llama to Tuy... Tuy, Galicia, España”... so, the name Tuy was given by Don Salvador Ellio in memory of his birthplace, Tuy, Galicia Spain.
