  • The Capitol Building - designed by eminent American architect Ralph Harrington Doane, the Pangasinan Provincial Capitol has seen much of the province's history unfold. The building was constructed from 1917-1918 during the term of Pangasinan's 7th Governor, Daniel Maramba (1916-1922). Its inaugural in February 1919 featured a Pangasinan exposition which focused the attention of the entire nation on the province, its agricultural and industrial products, its achievements and potentials. During this time, it was considered to be the most beautiful provincial building in the country, admired and copied by other provinces. Under the administration of Governor Amado T. Espino, Jr. (2007-present), the Capitol Building was further refurbished while all other provincial government buildings in the Capitol Complex underwent general facelift, renovation and restoration works. . The Capitol Building now houses the Offices of the Governor, the Vice-Governor and the Provincial Board Members, and several provincial government departments. These intensive rehabilitation projects, with the Capitol Building reclaiming its reputation to be the most beautiful Capitol in the country today, have transformed the Capitol Complex as an alternative tourist destination and the pride of Pangasinenses
