Named after the famous body of water forming its northern boundary, the province of Laguna is a place imbued with history and patriotism. Besides notably being the birthplace of the country’s national hero, Dr. Jose Rizal, Laguna has also ridden the tide of globalization and technological innovation across the centuries. Back in 1688, Santa Rosa was known as Barrio Bukol, before being politically emancipated as the municipality of Santa Rosa on January 15, 1972—named after Saint Rose of Lima.
