Infanta Church

This small town with the primitive name of Telbang was mentioned in the Acts of the Dominican Provincial Chapter of 1614. it was made and independent vicariate in 1668 when a resident pastor was assigned to it. In 1700, it was made a part of Malungay, now Bayambang. In 1764, during the infamous rebellion of “Palaris”, the town was razed by the advancing Royal Troops of Governor General Simon de Anda y Salazar. It reappeared later as Bautista in 1900.
