Since 1963, Vering’s House of Pastillas and Bocayo is one of the major pillars of bocayo industry in Lingayen. Vering’s House produce milk-based and coconut-based sweet treats that have been staple to many international events and forums throughout the decades. Vering’s products are unique from other brands in that the owner Virginia Ferrer uses a secret recipe, together with peanuts and linga toppings. Today, Vering’s House of Pastillas and Bocayo is one of the only three households left that survived the boom and bust of bacayo factories in Lingayen in the 1990’s.
Donated to the Pangasinan Government by the descendants of Antonio Bengson and Soterana Yuson, this ancestral house is Lingayen’s oldest standing residential house that was easily converted into a heritage museum. The house depicts the Spanish architecture of a typical 18th century Filipino home. It showcases classic furniture pieces, kitchen utensils, and other home paraphernalia used during the Spanish regime. The museum also displays various Filipiniana dresses, family portraits of the Bengson-Yuson families, and grand art pieces by renowned artist Romeo MananQuil, the man behind the designs of P1,000 and P20 bills, and the endemic tamaraw in the old Philippine peso coin.
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.
