1st District

Agno

3rd Class Municipality

Number of Barangay: 17

The name Agno was coined from a type of swamp tree called “Agno Castor” that grew abundantly in the area. Locals claim that Agno Castor’s concoction can help relieve body pains and illnesses. In 1791, Agno was officially organized into a municipality as part of the Province of Zambales but was annexed by the Province of Pangasinan on November 30, 1903, through the enactment of Public Act No. 1004.

Agno is located in western Pangasinan and is part of the first congressional district. It has a population of 29,947 with an average growth rate of 1.29% per annum according to the 2020 census. It is home to one of the most popular tourist attractions in the province, the Umbrella rocks of Sabangan. It is a group of large rock formations shaped like mushrooms along the coast of Agno. The town holds the annual Umbrella Rocks Festival to celebrate the amazing geological formation that has attracted tourists from all over the country.

Agno produces varieties of fruits such as mangoes and duhat during the summer season, although its fishing and farming industry remains as the main source of livelihood among the locals.
