The largest province in the Philippines

Quezon is one of the largest provinces of the Philippines and is located southeast of Metro Manila. It is almost at the middle of the Philippine Islands and was named after Manuel L. Quezon, the second President of the Philippines, and its capital is Lucena City.

The name of the province id often confused with a similar name of a city in Metro Manila. Quezon City is located in Metro Manila, a region to the west of CALABARZON, while Quezon province is in eastern CALABARZON.

Major tourist destinations:

A major tourism draw of the province is the famed Mt. Banahaw. The mountain is surrounded by spiritual mysticism. Many cults and religious organizations stay in the mountains and numerous Catholics visit the mountain during Holy Week.
Top Events:

Pahiyas Festival: held every May 15. It is an annual harvest festival and fest of San Isidro Labrador. Locals compete for the prize by coverieng their houses with multicolored rice starch decorations called kiping. And lots of fruits and vegeatables.

My recent visits:

GUMACA: quiet seatown

LUKBAN:
It is a cool mountain town hidden away in the foothills of Mount Banahaw.
