Quezon City is the biggest city in the Philippines. It is also one of the component cities that form Metro Manila. The city covers 166.2 sq km (64.2 sq mi) and has a population of 2.7 million people (2011 estimate).

Located at an average elevation of 17 m, it was incorporated on 12 October, 1939 from the former Diliman Estate. The Diliman name remains today as the center of Quezon City, and the location of many educational institutions. Quezon City was named after Manuel L. Quezon, who was the president of the Commonwealth of the Philippnes from 1935 until 1944. Quezon had developed the city to replace Manila as the country's capital.
