LGU - Rosario - Profile

Around 216 kilometers away from Manila, it requires a four-hour drive and serves as a vital link to the Ilocos and Cordillera Provinces. Kennon Road starts from this town and ends at Baguio City. It is also passed by motorists coming from Baguio City going to Western Pangasinan and Zambales Province. It shall serve as the terminus of the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway.

Its beach resorts, zoo and other attractions such as the Queen of Peace Priory and Tree House and World War II Vintage Canons located at the Town Plaza are the most visited sites especially for those coming from Baguio City which is only about 40 kilometers or an hour away. The Rosario Nature Park, a multi-hectare haven of lush green is La Union’s biggest camping site. Because of its wide area and exce-llent vegetation, it is used by the Boys and Girls Scouts of the Philippines as venue for Jamborees and Air Soft Enthusiasts for their War Games.

From April 17 to 19, an Agri Trade Fair is held to showcase harvests of the Municipality. It is within these dates that the Linubian Festival is held which is named after a local cassava and banana cake. A street-dancing competition highlights the event. Predominantly Roman Catholic, Rosario’s Parochial Fiesta falls every December 8, the Feast of Immaculate Concepcion.

In response to the continued needs of its constituents, the Municipal Government constructed a new Public Market which is conveniently located near the Rosario-Pugo Junction Road and a new Slaughter House which, unlike its predecessor, was built away from residential areas.
