About:
Calamba City, known as “The City of Growth, Leisure and National Pride”, is a fast-growing first class city in Region IV-A. It became as a Component City by virtue of Republic Act No. 9024 on March 5, 2001 and strengthened by a Comelec Plebiscite on April 21, 2001. Due to numerous companies in its area, the city considered as the premier industrial hub outside of Metro Manila.  Also, Calamba City is the regional center of the CALABARZON Region.

Historical Background:
In the early days, Calamba was just a part of Tabuco, now known as Cabuyao City. On August 28, 1742, Calamba became a pueblo, separating it from Cabuyao. Progress set in and since then, development started to flood in continuously. According to legend, the word “Calamba” was taken from the phrase “kalanbanga”. Kalanbanga was an earthen jar being carried by a young woman whom a Guardia Civil stopped to ask for the name of the place. Mistakenly thinking that she was being asked what she was carrying, she answered “kalan-banga”. Later on, Kalambanga was shortened to Calamba.

Geographic Location:
Calamba City is bounded in the east by Laguna de Bay, in north by Cabuyao, in the south by Los Baños and in the west by Santo Tomas and Tanauan in Batangas. Strategically located at the tail-end of the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and a 54 kilometers away from Metro Manila.
