Taal Volcano is a complex stratovolcano in the province of Batangas, Philippines. The volcano, together with the lake and its approximately radius, forms the larger Taal Volcano Natural Park, officially the Taal Volcano Protected Landscape (TVPL).
The nearest town, and the usual base for trips to the volcano, is Tagaytay in Cavite province. Talisay, within the park boundaries, is the nearest town at the Batangas side; the boats on the package tours depart from there, but it's possible to get there without going to Tagaytay.
The scenic historic town of Taal is covered in a separate article; it was built some distance away after a volcanic eruption wiped out an older town in 1755.
