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.
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.
Aguedo Agbayani Park looks like a mini version of Luneta Park with a lot of trees and benches designed for anyone who's looking for a peace of mind. It is situated just across the Capitol Building and is the good place to unwind right after a tour of the city. The park was named after Pangasinan's longest serving Governor, Aguedo F. Agbayani.
