The name Pangasinan means “land of salt” or “place of salt-making”; it is derived from the prefix pang, meaning “for”, the root word asin, meaning “salt”, and suffix an, signifying “location.” The province is a major producer of salt in the Philippines. Dagupan City is known for its bangus or “milkfish” festival, named after the fish that has made the city famous.

Pangasinan occupies a strategic geo-political position in the central plain of Luzon, known as the rice granary of the Philippines. Pangasinan has been described as a gateway to northern Luzon and as the heartland of the Philippines. – wikipedia.org
