According to legend, the name of the town was derived when a Spanish soldier went for a sightseeing on the West coast of Batangas and found a group of settlers whom he saw a woman cooking rice in palayok (clay pot). In Spanish language, the Spanish asked for the name of the place and because the woman assumed that he’s asking something about the rice, she replied “Nasubo na po iyan, kaya ganyan!”. The Spaniard repeated the word “Nasubo” and the woman nodded. Thus, Nasugbu’s name was formed.
