Nakar in neighboring Quezon Province; to the southeast by the municipality of Tanay; to the south by municipalities of Angono, Taytay and Teresa; and to the west by the municipality of Cainta and the city of Marikina in Metro Manila.

(Breadfruit tree):

Antipolo City was named after the Tipolo (breadfruit) tree (Artocarpus incisa) which was in abundance in the area.


Hinulugang Taktak
:

The Hinulugang Taktak falls is a part of Antipolo natural and cultural heritage. Its legendary origin dates back to the 15th century when legend has it that the waterfalls was where the townsfolk threw the large bell that caused undue disturbance whenever it was rung at Angelus. Its sound was so loud that the people could not endure it. They demanded that the local priest get rid of the bell. Thus Hinulugang Taktak, meaning the place where the bell was dropped. The place has since become a favorite spots for visitors and clients.

The Hinulugang Taktak waterfall is a living monument of the past. The City is a part and witnessed of that monumental years where people constantly attribute the place to the Patroness, the Our lady of Peace and Good Voyage.

The Hinulugang Taktak Recreation Area, which was reserved for scenic and recreaction purpose under Proclamation No. 330 dated July 18, 1952, has been converted into the Hinulugang Taktak National Park by virtue of Republic Act No. 6964 dated September 18 1990. This legendary 3.031 hectares park is located at Bgy. Dela Paz, Antipolo City.

The park is an alluring view of natural formation. After soul cleansing at the renowned Antipolo Lady of Peace Shrine, the park offers physical and spiritual cleansing for pilgrims.Unfortunately the falls is now filthy, saturated by wastes from sewages, piggeries, poultries but political efforts are passively being carried out.


Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage
:

The statue of Nuestra Señora de la Paz y Buen Viaje was brought from Mexico to Manila By. Gov. Juan Niño de Tavora in 1626 and upon his death in 1632 the blessed statue was turned over to the Jesuits for the Church of Antipolo. The statue experienced greater wonders, most notably in her journeys, which is why she was called the Virgin Voyager. She made eight galleon crossings to Acapulco, during dangerous times, on perilous seas: in 1641, 1643, 1645 to 1649 on the Encarnacion; 1650 on the San Diego; 1651 to 1653 on the San Javier; 1659 to 1662 on the San Jose; and in 1746 to 1748 on the Nuestra Señora del Pilar. The statue of Nuestra Señora de la Paz y Buen Viaje was "canonically crowned" on November 26, 1926, by the most Rev. Michael J. O Doherty, Archbishop of Manila, at the Luneta, Manila, in the presence of at least one hundred thousand people.

Antipolo is known to be the home of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage (Nuestra Señora de la Paz Y Buen Viaje). Historians say that this miraculous icon has sailed back and forth between Manila and Acapulco eight times and on several occasions was credited with saving her galleon from destruction by pirates and Dutch and British blockades. The galleon’s safe arrivals were attributed to the miraculous powers of the statuette. During the month of May thousands of devotees, especially those intending to travel abroad, come to pay homage at the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.
