Urbiztondo, officially the Municipality of Urbiztondo, (Pangasinan: Baley na Urbiztondo; Ilokano: Ili ti Urbiztondo; Tagalog: Bayan ng Urbiztondo), is a 3rd class municipality in the province of Pangasinan, Philippines. According to the 2015 census, it has a population of 50,170 people.[3]

History[edit]

The municipality was named after Spanish governor-general General Antonio de Urbiztondo y Villasis who acted as Spanish Governor in the Philippines and was also conqueror of the Muslims in Jolo from 1850 to 1852. He then issued a decree founding the town and consequently the newly formed town was named “Urbiztondo” in his honor. The Municipality of Urbiztondo’s establishment as a town was primarily due to Fr. Ramon Dalmau, the parish priest of San Carlos, who began its foundation in 1852, separating the said town from San Carlos now a city. The initiative in the emergence of Urbiztondo came from the pioneering fathers from San Carlos, Pangasinan. Its creation has been credited to Rev. Father Ramon Dalmau, curate of San Carlos who worked hard for its founding on November 28, 1853. It remained a visita of San Carlos in the year 1852. It was separated from San Carlos on the above date when it was assigned its own curate. The Dominicans accepted Urbiztondo as a vicariate in 1855 designating Rev. Father Francisco Treserra who is also responsible for relocating the town to the place where it is now located.
