Mangaldan, a small municipality in Pangasinan is one of the oldest towns in the Philippines. Founded in 1600, this town is host to many historical structures and remnants of a past we all know about.
The quaint municipality has many festivities that everyone can look forward to. The town is historically known to have aided in the liberation of our country against the Japanese. Mangaldan was used as an airbase for the American Army back in the 1940’s.
The municipality is home to the cleanest river in the entire Pangasinan province in 2012. The Angalacan River even won an award because of its cleanliness.
Aside from that, the town is also famous for its Pindang Festival which they celebrate every March. The pindang, thin slices of dried and cured carabao meat, is the town’s most popular delicacy.
