Muntinlupa, officially the City of Muntinlupa[3] (Filipino: Lungsod ng Muntinlupa, is the southernmost city in Philippine National Capital Region. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 459,941.[2] It is classified as a highly urbanized city[4]

It is bordered on the north by Taguig; to the northwest by Parañaque; by Las Piñas to the west; to the southwest by Bacoor; by San Pedro, Laguna and Laguna de Bay to the east, the largest lake in the country. It is given the nickname "Emerald City of the Philippines" by the tourism establishment.[5]

Muntinlupa is known as the location of the national insular penitentiary, the New Bilibid Prison, where the country's most dangerous criminals were incarcerated, as well as the location of Ayala Alabang Village, one of the country's biggest and most expensive residential communities, where many of the wealthy and famous live.

Etymology[edit]

Muntinlupa came from at least three versions. First, its association with the thin topsoil in the area. Second, residents, purportedly replying to a question by Spaniards in the 16th century what the name of their place was, said “Monte sa Lupa”—apparently mistaking the question for what card game they were playing. Third, the topographical nature of the area, where the term Monte or mountain was expanded to Muntinlupa or mountain land.

Barangays[edit]

  • Putatan got its name from a tree. When the Spaniards colonized the Philippines, those who came to this particular place which has yet no name during the 18th century found out that many trees abound which looked like the Santol tree but whose leaves are much bigger with flowers blooming like rounded bunches of threads in rosy color to become chain of fruits in a seemingly small vine branches. The fruits, which are known to be poisonous, resembled the American guava. Now, the Spaniards wanted to know the name of this place and had to ask the residents who likewise answered them, "PUTAT", and thinking the Spaniards were asking for the name of the trees around which is Putat.
  • Tunasan may have originated from the plant tunas which populate the shores of Tunasan. Another story would be that there may tulisan hiding in area and robbed Chinese Merchants and when asked where, they answered that they were robbed by tulisan.
  • Sucat got its name from the vernacular word sukat which means “measurement”. It has been known that this community prior to the establishment of the name during the Spanish era was always measured. During the regime, the Posadas family was in power because of the then Mayor of Manila – JUAN POSADAS, who have a close relation with the Spanish Government Officials. Juan Posadas was able to acquire all the land he wished to measure in the entire community due to his connections with the government.
