The heritage town of Taal started from the first ever pueblo ever established in Batangas by the Augustinian missionaries close to the shores of Lake Taal or Bombon Lake as it used to be known. In the present day, Taal is considered a 3rd income class municipality with a total land area of 2,976 hectares. Its population as per the 2015 Philippine Census was placed at 56,327. Taal is part of the 1st legislative district of Batangas

The town is considered historically significant not only because of its many preserved heritage houses but also because of the role its citizens played in the Philippine Revolution. The town can be reached by road from Manila via the Southern Tagalog Arterial Road through Lipa City, Cuenca, Alitagtag and Santa Teresita; or through Tagatay via the Payapa Road into Lemery.
