  • Catbalogan City is the capital of Samar Province, Philippines, with a population of 94,317. It is Samar's main commercial, trading, educational, political and financial center. It is also an important and major seaport serving inter-island vessels. Catbalogan City's central geographical location in Eastern Visayas makes it ideal as the gateway to the region's three Samar provinces. The city is often referred to as "The Gateway to Samar Region." Catbalogan City's Patron Saint is St. Bartholomew, the Apostle, and celebrates its city fiesta on August 24. The Philippine Army's 8th Infantry Division is based at Camp General Vicente Lukban, Barangay Maulong, Catbalogan City. The camp is named in honor of Vicente Lukbán, a Filipino officer in Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo's staff during the Philippine Revolution and the politico-military chief of Samar and Leyte during the Philippine-American War. Eastern Visayas' Philippine National Police Headquarters is also based inside the camp.
