Map of San Nicolas, Batangas

The town of San Nicolas along the shores of Taal Lake is the smallest geopolitical subdivision of Batangas, with a total land area of just 1,437 hectares. It is a 5th income class town with a population of 22,263 as per the 2015 Philippine Census. The town is part of the Province of Batangas’ 3rd legislative district.

This small town, however, has more than its lion’s share of history since this was the site of old Taal, until the latter was forced closer to Balayan Bay by the 1754 cataclysmic eruption of Taal Volcano. When Taal was still in San Nicolas, it was also the provincial capital.

This town can be reached from Manila by road via the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road through Lipa City, Cuenca, Alitagtag, and Santa Teresita. Alternatively, one can pass through Tagaytay through the Payapa road into Lemery and Taal.
