Calasiao

Aliguas Calasiao!

The Municipality of Calasiao is the second oldest town in the Province of Pangasinan.  It was founded by the Dominicans in the year 1588.  CALASIAO is derived from the root word “LASI” which means a place of lightning.

It is also the home of the famous and tasty Calasiao Puto.
