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.
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.

Some of the famous ASNA Awardees are Joyce Bernal, F. Sionil Jose, Jose De Venecia, and Fidel Ramos.
