The City of Santa Rosa (In Filipino, Lungsod ng Santa Rosa) is a first class city in the province of Laguna, Philippines. It is also known as "The Investment Capital of South Luzon" since 1994. The city lies 38 kilometers south of Manila via the South Luzon Expressway, making it a suburban residential community of Metro Manila.
