Zamboanga City ( Zamboangueño or Chavacano/Spanish: Ciudad de Zamboanga) (Filipino:Lungsod ng Zamboanga) is classified as a highly urbanized city and it is currently ranked as the 6th most populous city (947,020 population as of 2010) and the 3rd largest city by area in the Philippines. ((522/km2) 1,353/sq mi)

The Chabacano (popularly known as Zamboangueño, which is based on 70% Spanish words, and 30% Italian, Portuguese, Quechua, Taino, Mexican-Indian, Nauhtl, Tagalog, Illongo, Bisaya and other Philippine languages) made Zamboanga as "Asia's Latin City". Chavacano language is the only Spanish-based creole in Asia
