Juan de Salcedo founded San Pablo as the kingdom of "Sampaloc". Augustinian priests built a church in the 16th century. And in 1586 it was erected as a parish and known as the "Parish of San Pablo delos Montes". In 1910 it became part of the Archdiocese of Lipa and on November 28, 1966 became an independent diocese as a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Manila. On April 18, 1967 Bishop Pedro N. Bantigue was installed as its first bishop.
