SAN PABLO CITY AT A GLANCE

Introduction


San Pablo City is better known as the City of the Seven Lakes because of its seven (7) enticing and legendary crater lakes. It is endowed by nature with abundant fresh water supply from its eight large mountain springs which provide excellent potable water to its residents.

San Pablo City is only 90 minutes drive from Manila via 82 kilometers of concrete pavement of the Philippine-Japan Friendship Highway (Maharlika Highway) and 60 minutes drive from Lucena City, capital of Quezon Province. It opens gradually into a scenery of lush fruit trees and the refreshing greenery of an agricultural locale towards a burgeoning center of commerce and trade that combines urbanization with the rustic but modest lifestyles of its people. 

Major bus companies ply the developed and well-maintained provincial roads daily to and from adjacent urban centers in the Philippine capital, Manila and in Batangas, Laguna and Quezon provinces.

Domestic and foreign tourists go to Manila by air, sea or land, before proceeding by land to San Pablo City. In the city they can ride in jeepneys or tricycles to tour the city and the barangays.
