Marikina is one of the cities that make up Metro Manila, the National Capital Region. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 450,741.
Located along the eastern border of Metro Manila, Marikina is the main gateway of Metro Manila to Rizal and Quezon provinces through Marikina–Infanta Highway. It is bordered on the west by Quezon City, to the south by Pasig and Cainta, to the north by San Mateo and to the east by Antipolo, the capital of Rizal province.
Marikina was the provincial capital of the Province of Manila from 1898 to 1899. Then became one of the towns of Rizal Province prior to the formation of Metro Manila. A formerly rural settlement, Marikina is now primarily residential and industrial, and has been becoming increasingly commercial in recent years. Marikina is also considered as one of the wealthiest local government units in the Philippines.
Marikina was given the title “Shoe Capital of the Philippines” because of its notable shoe industry, being the biggest manufacturer of shoes in the Philippines, producing almost 70% of shoes manufactured in the country. The Philippine International Footwear Center is located here where top quality shoes can be found, and the Shoe Museum houses the largest pair of shoes in a museum as well as the famous shoe collection of the former First Lady Imelda Marcos.
The city is also the see of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Marikina, making a landmark and the oldest cathedral in the valley built in 1572.
