About:

Historical Background:
Long before, in the 18th century the town of Tayabas had a 30,000 hectares land area. Territorial boundary between Tayabas and Sariaya was set in 1770 - a marker was put near Gibanga River; between Tayabas and Lucban in the year 1846. A coastal barangay of Cotta, a thriving trading area of Tayabas became a town in 1879. The place is now called Lucena. Thus, land area of Tayabas was reduced to what is now 23,095 hectares.

Tayabas is at 14050 latitude east-southeast of Mount Banahaw and positioned between 14°01’40.3” N Latitude and 121°36’54.5” E Longitude. Bounded on the north by Lucban; Mauban on the east; Pagbilao to the south-east; Lucena City to the south; and Sariaya and Mount Banahaw to the west.
