Calamba, the Heros Town

Calamba was an hacienda town which belonged to the Dominican Order, which also owned all the lands around it. A few meters to the south looms the legendary Mount Makiling, and beyond this is the province of Batangas. East of the town is the Laguna de Bay where the storied island of Talim towers. And beyond it towards the north is the distant Antipolo.

The story of the moth and the flame was told to Rizal by his mother on a night when her mother was teaching him how to read a book entitled El Amigos de los Nios.
