Victoria, Laguna

Victoria is a 4th class municipality in the province of Laguna, Philippines. According to the latest census, it has a population of 33,829 people in 6,128 households.
It is southeast of Laguna de Bay, 90 km south of Manila and bordered by the Municipality of Calauan to the southwest, Nagcarlan to the southeast and Pila to the northeast. The municipality has a total land area of 22.83 square kilometres which is 1.30% of the total land area of the province of Laguna.
Victoria was a barrio of Pila until November 15, 1949 when President Elpidio Quirino signed into effect EO 282 segregating this barrio and 8 others into an independent community. Its name was adopted from President Quirino’s daughter Victoria Quirino.
After Pateros, Metro Manila became highly urbanized and densely populated, Victoria became a destination of balut traders and became the Duck Raising Center of the Philippines. The town was featured as the detour challenge of Leg 11 of the 5th Season of the Amazing Race. Victoria celebrate their Itik Festival every last week of April.
In fact, the capital of Pila was once in Barangay Pagalangan, now one of Victoria’s barangays. What remains of Pila’s original parish church can still be found in Pagalangan, which in the past made that community a target of treasure hunters seeking antiques. Pagalangan ceased to be Pila’s capital when the town center was moved due to frequent flooding
The town of Victoria, which borders Laguna Lake, is known for the Itik (Anas plathrhynchos Linn) Festival, held every second week of November. Nowhere else is the P5.5-billion duck industry more vibrant than in this municipality of 30,000.
In 2003, the Philippines produced 54 million kilos of duck eggs and the same volume of duck meat. Total duck egg production amounted to P2.5 billion while the combined duck meat output grossed P2.93 billion.

Victoria is politically subdivided into 9 barangays. Two of these, Nanhaya and San Roque, are classified as urban while the rest are rural.
