“Cocopalm City of the South”

Lucena City is the capital of Quezon Province. Though comprising only one percent of the province’s big total area, Lucena is a bustling urbanized city that is wedged between the majestic and mystic Mt.Banahaw in the northwest and the placid waters of Tayabas Bay in the south. The City is a vibrant community with a mixed culture as a large number of migrants comes and goes either to permanently settle or do business.
