Mention the word Calamba and any Filipino will recall the name: Jose Rizal.
Indeed, Calamba’s greatest contribution to Philippine history and independence is the fact that it is the birthplace of our great national hero.
But Calamba is more than just a heritage site. Only 54 kilometers outside of Metro Manila, Calamba is considered as the Regional Center of CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon). Today it has become the investment haven with the influx of many business and industries.
The city is also known as the Resort Capital of the Philippines because of its numerous hot spring resorts, which are mostly located in Barangay Pansol, Bucal and Bagong Kalsada.
Because Calamba, Laguna has so many coconut trees, several local delicacies are coconut-based. Be sure to try buko (young coconut) pie and espasol (a sweet, sticky treat dusted with coconut powder).
Fiesta Souvenirs truly capture the history and beauty of Calamba, Laguna!
