Rodriguez, formerly but still sometimes called Montalban, is a town at the foothills of the Sierra Madre at the province of Rizal.


Lying at the northern edges of Rizal, Rodriguez hugs at the foothills of the Sierra Madre and is a refuge from Manila's sprawl; however, the town itself forms already a huge part of the mess which spilled eastward. The municipal area covers already 26% of Rizal's land area, big enough for space for various developments.
