About:
The City of San Pablo, a first class city in the Province of Laguna, is one of the country's oldest cities. The City of San Pablo lies in the southern portion of Laguna province. This city is otherwise known as the "City of Seven Lakes" because it has seven lakes - Sampalok, Palakpakin, Yambo, Bunot, Pandin, Mohikap, and Calibato. By Land Area, it is the largest in the province of laguna. By population, it ranks fifth in the Province of Laguna. San Pablo City was once part of the Archdiocese of Lipa since 1910 but on November 28, 1967 it became an independent diocese, the Diocese of San Pablo.

Historical Background:
In ancient times, San Pablo was known as the Village of Sampaloc. It was an upland realm surrounded by mountain ranges and quiescent volcanic peaks. It was believed that mountain making movements or orogeny had thrust lower lying areas to uplands and low rolling plains after extensive volcanisms took place millions of years ago and where Caesal piniaceus tamarind or Sampalok trees grew in wild abundance. This upland realm became the town, San Pablo de los Montes.

Geographic Location:
It is located at 14° 4” north latitude and 121° east latitude. It is about 87 south-southwest of the City of Manila, with Rizal Park as reference point. The City is the center of other progressive cities in Southern Luzon as it belongs to a vital economic hub. San Pablo has a cool climate owing to its location. It is nestled in the foothills of three mountains: Mount Banahaw, Mount Makiling and the Sierra Madre Mountains. These mountains do not only provide attractions for the tourism industry (such as waterfalls) and sources of many forest-based products, but also serve as stewards for the clean air. Its soil is suitable for those seeking opportunities in agriculture and horticulture given its richness and fertility. The different barangays have coconut lanzones and rambutan plantation and rich in orchid plants.
