Bayambang

Bayambang in the early days had a big territorial coverage.  The municipalities of Bautista, Alcala, Sto. Tomas and Rosales were once part of the old Bayambang.  Today, its size had been reduced after the aforementioned municipalities attained municipal status.  Bayambang was founded in the 16th century by an Aeta known as Agalet.

The name of the town according to the legend came from the name of a plant called “balangbang”.  As years passed by, the plant became extinct but the name “Bayambang” was retained and was given to designate the town.
