Burgos is a fourth-class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 18,315 people. Burgos was founded as an independent town in 1830 by the early Ilocanos from Paoay, Ilocos Norte headed by Don Matias Guiang. As the settlement grew thickly populated and extensive, Don Matias Guiang led a petition to the Governor of Zambales to create a new town out of the settlement. The request was granted and the new town was named San Isidro which was finally renamed Burgos, after the Filipino martyr priest who was executed during the Spanish regime.The town of Burgos was ceded to the Province of Pangasin|an by virtue of Public Act No. 1004 dated November 30, 1903 of the Philippine Commission.
