At the heart of Laguna’s teeming coconut regions, bordered by Mt. Banahaw at the East and Mt. Basilin at the Northwest, lies the Municipality of Rizal, named after the greatest national hero. Appropriately enough, a life-size statue of Dr. Jose P. Rizal stands at the center of the Plaza. As you enter Rizal, you’ll notice that there is no existing antique house or any old architectural structures because it was burned by the Japanese army during World War 2. “”The only remaining historical treasure is the guerilla headquarters  called “PARANG” where the wife, Virginia Llamas Romulo and 2 sons of the late Carlos P. Romulo were hidden and later picked up by a plane to be brought to the place where the late Secretary Romulo was. At the same landing field, foods, arms and ammunitions were dropped by the Americans in February 1945.””

Formerly, the small town of Rizal, Laguna was only a barrio of Nagcarlan, Province of Laguna. She was called as Barrio Pauli which came from the word “Pauli-uli” or moving back and forth after the meandering creek close by. In 1912, after the liberation, Barrio Pauli obtained her municipal status with Pedro Urrea Sr.,  as its Municipal President. She then became a Municipality of Rizal, named after the country’s National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.
