About:
Batangas is a first class province of the Philippines located on the southwestern part of Luzon in the CALABARZON region. Its capital is Batangas City and it is bordered by the provinces of Cavite and Laguna to the north and Quezon to the east. Across the Verde Island Passages to the south is the island of Mindoro and to the west lies the South China Sea. Poetically, Batangas is often referred to by its ancient name Kumintang.

Historical Background:
Originally composed of Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and parts of Laguna and Ambos-Camarines and also known as COUMINTAN or KUMINTANG. In 1534, Batangas became the first practically organized province in Luzon and was officially founded in the year 1581. Balayan was the capital of the province for 135 years from 1597-1732. In 1732 it was moved to Taal then the most progressive and flourishing town of the province. After several calamitous eruptions of Taal Volcano that buried then old Taal town site, the capital was transferred to Batangas (now a city) in 1754 where it has remained to the present.

Bounded on the North by the province of Cavite, on the northeast and east by the province of Laguna and Quezon respectively, on the south by Verde Island passages and on the west by the China Sea.
