History The city was named after the ''tipolo'' (breadfruit) tree (''Artocarpus incisa''), which was in abundance in the area. Franciscan missionaries (missionary) arrived in Antipolo in 1578, and built a small church on what is now Boso-Boso Church (Nuestra Señora Dela Annunciata Church (Antipolo)). They were soon replaced in 1591
progressive provinces in country, owing to its proximity to Metro Manila, the economic center of the Philippines. Antipolo, Taytay (Taytay, Rizal) and Cainta (Cainta, Rizal) serve as the economic centers of the province, while Angono (Angono, Rizal), Rodriguez (Rodriguez, Rizal), Morong (Morong, Rizal), San Mateo (San Mateo, Rizal), Tanay (Tanay, Rizal), Binangonan (Binangonan, Rizal) and Teresa (Teresa, Rizal) are taking successful steps to urbanize areas within their jurisdiction. Other areas of the province are having difficulty to start the urbanization process, mainly because of the lack of main roads to connect these to economic centers. Antipolo, the province's capital city, is the center of trade and exchange, tourism, government and economy. It is also a center of education and sports because of the availability of various educational and physical training facilities. Acclaimed of its scenic attractions, the city also produces agricultural products such as cashew nuts and rice cakes. Taytay, the province's center of garment and textile manufacturing, is also the town where the country's largest mall operator runs a store near the town center. Meanwhile, Cainta serves as the center of business-process outsourcing (BPO) businesses in the province, aside from being known for the presence of several shopping centers and delicacies such as bibingka or rice cakes. In 1853, a new political subdivision was formed. This consisted of the towns of Antipolo, Bosoboso, Cainta and Taytay from the Province of Tondo; and the towns of Morong (Morong, Rizal), Baras (Baras, Rizal), Tanay (Tanay, Rizal), Pililla, Angono (Angono, Rizal), Binangonan (Binangonan, Rizal) and Jalajala (Jalajala, Rizal) from the Province of La Laguna, with the capital at Morong. This district was later changed to Distrito Politico-Militar de Morong after four years. The new province was composed of 29 municipalities, 17 from the old Province of Manila (Manila (province)) (Caloocan, Las Piñas, Mariquina (Marikina) (Marikina)Lumisang-Aguho, Montalban (Rodriguez) (Rodriguez, Rizal), Muntinlupa, Navotas, Novaliches (Quezon City#Novaliches), Parañaque, Pasig, Pateros (Pateros, Metro Manila), Pineda (Pasay) (Pasay), San Felipe Neri (Mandaluyong) (Mandaluyong), San Juan del Monte (San Juan) (San Juan, Metro Manila), San Mateo (San Mateo, Rizal), San Pedro Macati (Makati) (Makati), Taguig, Tambobong (Malabon) (Malabon)); and 12 from the Politico-Militar District of Morong, (Angono (Angono, Rizal), Baras (Baras, Rizal), Binangonan (Binangonan, Rizal), Cainta (Cainta, Rizal), Antipolo, Cardona (Cardona, Rizal), Jalajala (Jalajala, Rizal), Morong (Morong, Rizal), Pililla (Pililla, Rizal), Tanay (Tanay, Rizal), Taytay (Taytay, Rizal) and Teresa (Teresa, Rizal)). The City of Manila (Manila) from the old Province of Manila was treated as a separate entity. The seat of the provincial government was Pasig. The representation of a city in the House of Representatives (House of Representatives of the Philippines) (or lack thereof) is not a criterion for its independence from a province, as Congress is for national legislation and is part of national (central) government. Despite Antipolo, Dasmariñas and San Jose del Monte having their own representatives in Congress, they are still component cities of Rizal (Rizal province), Cavite and Bulacan respectively, as their respective charters specifically converted them into component cities and do not contain any provision that severs their relations with their respective provincial governments. Conversely, the city of Cotabato (Cotabato City) has, since its incorporation in 1959, been autonomously governed from the provinces which surrounded it. Although for the purposes of representation in the various national legislatures the city has been grouped with the province of Cotabato (until 1972), Region XII (1978 to 1984), Maguindanao (1984 to 2007; 2008 to present), and Shariff Kabunsuan (2007 to present). *** ''Most provinces:'' There are several component cities that border two provinces, not counting the province of which they are a part: Calamba City, Lipa City, San Pablo City, Tacurong, Tagaytay and Tanauan City. *** ''Most primary-level LGUs:'' If independent cities are also considered in addition to the provinces, there are a few component cities sharing boundaries with 3 primary-level LGUs (List of primary local government units of the Philippines): Antipolo (Marikina, Pasig, Quezon (Quezon (province))), and San Jose del Monte (Caloocan, Quezon City, Rizal (Rizal (province))). *** ''Most municipalities and cities:'' Lipa City is bounded by 13 other cities and municipalities. Clockwise, starting from the northeast, these are: Alaminos (Alaminos, Laguna) and San Pablo City in Laguna (Laguna (province)), Tiaong and San Antonio (San Antonio, Quezon) in Quezon (Quezon (province)), and Padre Garcia (Padre Garcia, Batangas), Rosario (Rosario, Batangas), Ibaan, San Jose (San Jose, Batangas), Cuenca (Cuenca, Batangas), Mataas na Kahoy, Balete (Balete, Batangas), Malvar (Malvar, Batangas) and Santo Tomas (Santo Tomas, Batangas) in Batangas.
