Infanta Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 7 photos
Infanta is one of the oldest towns in Quezon Province. It is situated in the northern part of the Quezon mainland lying along the coast of the Pacific Ocean facing the island municipalities of Polillio. Straddles a portion of the Sierra Madre Mountains. It has a total land area of 34,276 hectares and a population of 58,063 (Source: 2006 Rain-Induced Landslide/Flashflood Disaster Preparedness Plan) scattered among its thirty-six barangays.
The name Infanta was given by a Spanish Captain Juan Salvador in 1835 in honor of the eldest daughter of King Philip II of Spain. But even as late as the 1880s Infanta was known by its mythical name Binangonan del Ampon.
Infanta is accessible from Manila through a picturesque route around the laketowns of Rizal, on to the adjoining towns of Laguna. A refreshing vehicular climb up the mountains greets the traveler. Travel to Infanta from Quezon City & Manila only takes about 3 to 4 hours.
Buses and private vans plying the Manila-Infanta route and vice-versa can be found at Sta. Teresita, off Legarda Street, Sampaloc Manila. Both transportation services have daily round the clock trips.
Actually, my three of five J's in my life....
