The San Roque Dam is a 200-meter-tall, 1.2 kilometer long embankment dam on the Agno River. It is the largest dam in the Philippines and the largest hydro installation in Southeast Asia. An appointment has to be made before coming here because the power plant naturally operates on high security. The best time to come is early in the morning, so you can take a scenic drive to the top of the dam and get a bird's eye view of San Manuel as you wait for the sun to rise.

Saint Bartholomew Catholic Church
Attraction
9.00 km away

Like many churches in Pangasinan, the Parish of St. Bartholomew endured natural calamities, insurrections, and the wear and tear brought by the passing of time. Its concrete foundations were laid in 1882, with a cruciform. On 1894, the day of its inauguration, the church was destroyed by a powerful whirlwind. Reconstruction of another church began, together with a convent, but this turned to rubble too after being burned by the revolutionaries in 1898. Finally, a smaller church was created, which has survived to this day as the St. Bartholomew Parish that we know.

Krispee-K Special Pasalubong
Attraction
11.69 km away

Krispee-K Special Pasalubong may sound like a famous donut shop but the name is a combination of the children of the Veniegas couple namely Kristal, Kimpee, Kamille, and Kalvin. They started their pasalubong business 25 years ago by selling individual packs of chips for only one peso around Binalonan. Later they were able to have their own manufacturing place in Brgy. Moreno, Binalonan. Their workers peel, cook, and pack different chips for 24 hours and 7 days to produce tons of chips distributed in Manila and Northern Luzon. Buyers can choose among packs of banana chips, kamote (sweet potato) chips, taro chips, and ube chips.

Mabuhay Chichacorn
Attraction
11.72 km away

One of favorite crunchy snack in the Philippines is the “chichacorn” or fried corn kernels. Chichacorn is made by boiling the corn kernels and drying them on the sun for 2-3 days before frying in a large pan or “kawa”. Salt and flavoring are then added once the corn kernels are cooked. The flavors include garlic, cheese, spicy, adobo, and barbeque. Laoac’s Mabuhay Chichacorn has been making this crunchy snack since 1993. They are currently distributing their chichacorn to North Luzon, Divisoria, and nearby towns like Manaoag. One kilogram of chichacorn is sold for 100 pesos when bought in Laoac.
