Being a resident in Calamba also means being close to the sense of patriotism from our declared national hero, Jose Rizal. The replica of his childhood home, is now being used as a museum – Museo ni Jose Rizal ­– showcasing his family, education, journeys to Europe, and his famous works. Likewise, Bria Calamba homeowners are just a walk away from these historical museum galleries serving as a shrine to the declared national hero.

Other than the museum, the tallest Jose Rizal monument so far, is located in this city. Hence, the monument poses as a grand historical landmark and one of the newest tourist spots in Calamba.


Near the shrine of Jose Rizal, the landmark and the official symbol of Calamba can be seen. The giant 12-meter high clay pot, or Giant Banga, is engraved with its barangays’ names. The city’s name “Calamba” stemmed from the words kalan (clay stove) and banga (clay pot). In fact, from this background, pottery is an important source of livelihood for most of its folks.
