Map of Rosario, Batangas


According to some accounts, the town of Rosario was originally in what is present-day Lobo. Persistent raids by pirates forced the inhabitants of the settlement inland, and whilst retreating they turned to the praying of the Holy Rosary. This, according to folklore, was how Rosario got its name. In the present day, Rosario is a 1st income class municipality with a total land area of 22,688 hectares, third largest in Batangas. According to the 2015 Philippine Census, its population was 116,764.

Rosario has 48 barangays in all and is part of the 4th legislative district of Batangas. It can be reached by road from Manila via the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road through Lipa City and Padre Garcia; or via Ibaan from the STAR.
