Mauban is the place where I was born, raised, schooled - my hometown!
The town of Mauban is located at the foot of Sierra Madre Mountains, beside the mouth of Maapon River, overlooking Lamon Bay and can be found at coordinates 14° 11' 28" North, 121° 43' 52" East.
Mauban is a first class municipality in the province of Quezon and composed of 40 barangays (six of them are part of the town proper).
Founded by the Franciscans on 1583 in Pinagbayanan (now Luya-luya). Transferred to Balay-balay to avoid the Moro pirates. Re-transferred on 1678 to Sulida.
