Tanza has a total land area of 96.30 square kilometers and is composed of 41 barangays. Farming and fishing are the major sources of livelihood in the municipality. The lowland municipality of Tanza is located in the northwestern part of Cavite. It is bounded by the Municipality of Rosario in the north, the Municipality of Gen. Trias in the east, by Trece Martires City and the Municipality of Naic in the south, and the Manila Bay in the west. Tanza is the historic location where Emilio Aguinaldo took his oath as the first president of the revolutionary government of the Philippines. The first class municipality is now experiencing rapid urban growth. Rapid urbanization could be attributed to the housing projects and availability of low cost housing, coupled with the existence of several industrial establishments in the municipality, as well as its proximity to the Cavite Export Processing Zone.
