Pampanga Travel Information
Pampanga is populated by resourceful hardy folk, who are justifiably proud of their famous Kapampangan cuisine, regarded by many as the best regional food in the Philippines. The capital, San Fernando, is world famous for the annual Easter re-enactment of the Crucifixion. It is also renowned for the famous Pampangan Christmas Village. Angeles City is a booming nightlife center and tourist destinations, while the adjoining Clark Special Economic Zone is the site of world class resorts, casinos, duty free shopping and golf courses.
Pampanga has many remnants of a long and colorful history, including roofs of the old Spanish houses and church of Bacolor, the Betis Church at Guagua and the St. Peter Shrine at Apalit, with its life-sized image of the saint. The Death March Marker at San Fernando Railroad Station commemorates the heroics of the prisoners who took part in the infamous World War II Death March.
