In a report by a Spanish priest named Fr. Bartolome Galan in 1823, he describes the economy of the province. According to his report, Tayabas had poor soil and the terrain is hilly which meant that conditions were not that suitable for agriculture compared to other places. The people grew upland rice, wheat, beans and vegetables. Surplus rice was sold in San Pablo and Majayjay during Mondays, the market day of those towns. Cattle breeding was rampant in towns like Tayabas, Pagbilao, Tiaong, and Sariaya. Also, unlike other provinces, haciendas were not so many in Tayabas. Instead, residents owned most of their own land. . The Americans then came and annexed the Philippines. A civil government was established in the province on March 12, 1901, and Lucena was made the provincial capital. ] The occupation witnessed the brutal murders of prominent sons of Tayabas.

Santa Cruz, Laguna was the entropot for all goods going to the capital. The people from Lucban made products of buri and pandan leaves like hats, sleeping mata and the like which they traded. They, along with the people of Mauban also went to Polillo, at that time part of Nueva Ecija, to buy sea slugs, shells and beeswax. Being a rich agricultural area, the town of Tayabas traded rice, coconuts, and panocha with nearby towns of Majayjay, Lucban, Sariaya, Pagbilao, Mauban, Gumaca and Atimonan. In turn, they traded fish from Pagbilao, rice from Sariaya, and high quality abaca products from Mauban and Atimonan. Lucban, as well as Tayabas, benefitted greatly from the high commercial activity of Chinese and Chinese mestizos in the pueblos. . Gumaca, being a town with little arable land depended heavily on the sea. They collected sea slugs, and tortoise shell from Alabat and traded with the mountain people there for beeswax in exchange for clothing. They even sometimes ventured to Burias Island in the Ragay Gulf in search for these goods. These products were then sent to Tayabas for shipment to Manila. Gumaca also traded items from nearby pueblos like vinegar and clothing for gold and abaca from Naga in the Bicol region. . [ˈkɛson] ) is a province of the Philippines in the Calabarzon.

The Chief delineated the border as follows: A major tourism draw to the province is Mount Banahaw. The mountain is surrounded by spiritual mysticism with many cults and religious organizations staying on the mountain. The mountain was also one of the most sacred sites for pre-colonial Tagalog people before the arrival of the Spanish. Numerous pilgrims visit the mountain especially during Holy Week. It was also around this time that the Confradia de San Jose was active in the province, caused by the growing inequality between the poor and the upper classes. This organization was directed mostly on the poor and neither admitted Spaniards, nor Mestizos. .

From Mount Cadig it extends along the crest of a mountain range, a distance of 50 kilometers, more or less, to a peak known as Mount Labo; thence in a southwesterly direction, a distance of 25 kilometers, more or less, to a prominent stone monument at the source or headwaters of the Pasay River, thence along the meandering course of said river in a southerly direction, a distance of 1½ kilometers, more or less, to the Gulf of Ragay." .

The building may be outside of the city boundary. Some buildings appear to be marked in the wrong location. Why is this? Only highrise buildings are marked (a highrise is a multi-floored building of at least 35 meters in height or at least 12 floors). Some multi-floored buildings which are visible on the satellite photos but aren't marked may not be considered as a highrise. For example, a 10 storey residential building (with a height of below 35 meters) is not considered a highrise and will not be marked on the map. In the image to the right, the lower building, while casting a large shadow, is not marked as a highrise because it has only 10 floors, while the building across the street from it, which has 13 floors, is marked. Also, structures such as Toronto's CN Tower or Seattle's Space Needle, while certainly being quite tall, aren't marked because they aren't considered as highrises. The maps may be expanded in the future to include additional types of structures. Tall buildings on the map are marked at the position where they rise from the ground. Sometimes satellite imagery of a city shows buildings from an oblique (angled) view and a building may appear offset from its actual map location. In the image to the right, the red marker is marking the tower which rises to the right of it, not the tower with the roof the marker is over top of. This paradox is caused by the oblique view of the satellite imagery. Development Maps Direct links to maps showing only under- construction and proposed buildings. The building may simply not exist in the SkyscraperPage database at all. 73,071 highrise buildings are marked in the map system. Some buildings on the map aren't marked. Why is this? Browse Buildings By Map What better way is there to look at buildings and cities then with a map? Of course there are the skyscraper diagrams, but interactive maps are a close second! Here you'll find many cities mapped out with their current and future highrise buildings. Buildings marked on a map can be clicked on to open their information page, and special controls allow you to customize what is shown on each map. Not every highrise building in each city may be marked, and not all cities are covered yet, but our editors continually mark new buildings and the top cities have good coverage. Navigate Cities By World Map Click a city marker to view the skyscraper map for that city. The numbers in brackets indicate the number of buildings marked on that particular city map. Zoom-in to the map (double-click) and pan-around (click + drag) to get at all cities. Standard Maps These maps show completed, under- construction and proposed buildings. Our editors may not yet have identified and marked every building in the city. Out of a total of 88,127 highrises in our world-wide database which are eligible for inclusion on the highrise maps, only 73,071 of them have had their location data set and actually appear on the maps. Browser Performance Because of the large number of elements contained within a map it is important to use a web browser which can adequately handle the task of displaying the maps. Google Chrome performs the best, Firefox is second and Microsoft Internet Explorer is third. The number of buildings indicated as being marked for each city (only highrise buildings are included) does not necessarily represent the number of highrises there actually are in the city. The developments maps may not be comprehensive either.
