The town of Pitogo was founded in the year 1754 by Juan Mauricio on the banks of the Mayubok river near a huge Pitogo palm, hence the name Pitogo.
Prior to 1754 the town was located in the place which is now known as Barrio Pinagbayanan. Frequent Moro raids compelled me people to seek a new site and under the leadership of Juan Mauricio they evacuated to its present location.
Pitogo is comprised of 39 barangays with a total land area of 8,990 hectares, majority of which is coconut land, the town's major crop.
Pitogo is located on craggy hills facing Tayabas Bay. The Poblacion is hilly and visitors find picturesque reminding them of Baguio.
Frequent Moro raids during the Spanish periods forced the people to build a watchtower on the highest hill. It was the belief of the town people during that time that St. Paul, the Apostle, its Patron Saint caused the town to appear as a dense forest thus causing the Moro pirates to bypass the place.
The old families of Pitogo are mostly of Visayan descent. With the construction of roads, migrants from Batangas and neighboring towns came to settle. There are now plenty of Bicolanos. The people are mostly Catholics with some Protestants and Iglesia Ni Cristo.
