Where to stay
The beautiful town of Mangatarem has been around long enough to be more than just a town that tourists pass by when going to other parts of Pangasinan. It boasts an abundant area for trade as many farms are found within the area. Rich with environment-first destinations, the town hosts hidden gems that you would have never thought of that it originated from Mangatarem. People unfamiliar with Pangasinan culture but are aware of its roads know of a famous food that is constantly offered along the main highway: “tupig”. Not only is it delicious, but also it originally came from Mangatarem, through the famous “Nanay Patring”. Bigger in size and more crisp in taste, Nanay Patring somehow resembles as an iconic figure for Mangatarem as she continues to provide tupig for tourists and locals. Away from the urbanization of fast food comes a refreshing tourist destination for those looking to go organic. Our Farm Republic, situated in Mangatarem, serves as a retreat house for people interested in living the farm life. Not only can you find crops and livestock in the farm for trade or for buying, you can even stay at the farm ala hotel to fully immerse yourself on being a farmer. Only in Mangatarem. A visit to Mangatarem would not be complete without going to the town’s main church: the Saint Raymond of Peñafort Parish Church. This church, also commonly known as Mangatarem Church, acts as the main place of refuge for the locals, where its vintage architecture remains intact for people looking to get married or their kids to be baptized. Only in Mangatarem will tourists experience natural hot springs through the Manleluag Spring Protected Landscape, flowing from Mt. Zambales. Mangatarem not only holds farms and local delicacies, but it boasts environment-friendly nature parks that are waiting to be discovered. Journey to the town of Mangatarem and realize that its not just a pass-by town.
