And the most popular version is that it was originated from Simeona Mangaba, known to many as Ate Monang. She was a protector and a leader and eldest sister of Francisco Mangaba who was once the captain of the town. We are the Atimonanins . We use Tagalog. And just so you know most Atimonanins are mix of chinese and spanish. Catholic is the religion. And lastly, Atimonan’s economy is sustained by fishing and agriculture. But what I am proud of with this town is the culture and heritage aside from its history.
There are numerous attractions in Atimonan , Have you seen the Quezon National Park? the zigzag road ? or the bituka ng Manok? How about the iskong Bantay Watch tower? Lamon Bay? We also have waterfalls too , the Bantakay waterfalls Magsaysay falls, Lumiliay River Waterfalls . Try to visit the longest Malusak cave in atimonan and Maria cristina Park located along the Maharlika Highway in Atimonan. The Atimonan church which was built in 1640 but was burned during world war II. We also have Sirena which is located along the main highway …I will feature each one of these attractions later on.
