Designed by Ralph Harrington Doane, Pangasinan’s Capitol Building is of neo-classical architectural design and is considered as one of the Architectural Treasures of the Philippines by the National Commission for Culture and Arts. The construction of the original building began in 1917, was completed in 1918, and was inaugurated in 1919. It was damaged during World War II and was reconstructed in 1949 under the term of Governor Enrique Braganza. In 2007, during the term of Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr., the building was renovated as the initial part of the governor’s project, “dawning of the golden era” of the province.
Built in 1587, Epiphany of Our Lord Parish is one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in Pangasinan. Influenced by the town’s Christianized Chinese inhabitants during the Spanish Colonial Period, the church was made of adobe with an oriental pagoda-like bell tower. Currently, a replica of the original “retablo” is displayed inside, while a number of huge tower bells from the 1800’s are displayed outside the church. Earning its distinction as one of the best structures in Pangasinan, Epiphany of our Lord Parish was built by by Augustinian Spanish missionaries and has been in care by different groups of priests through the decades, from Columban to Filipino missionaries.
Sison Auditorium, also called by the Pangasinenses as the Cultural Center of Pangasinan (CCP), is a frequent venue for the citywide events of Lingayen. This neo-classical auditorium showcases the Manaoag Festival, musical concerts, cultural shows, theater plays, graduation, social and major government functions, and the renowned ASNA Awards which recognizes the most outstanding Pangasinenses in specific fields. Some of the famous ASNA Awardees are Joyce Bernal, F. Sionil Jose, Jose De Venecia, and Fidel Ramos.
