History of PIDEG as one Baranggay in Tubao La Union Before the Spanish Before the province of La Union was established, Pideg was part of Tubao, La Union, and was a settlement of people of the "same race as those of Pangasinan." (de Loarca,1582) These people traded with Chinese merchants long before Columbus even sailed to the new world. Later, the Japanese came and established their first settlement in the Philippines. At this time, Pideg's coast was shaped in such a way that it was a good harbor for foreign vessels coming into Lingayen Gulf. Miguel De Loarca referred to Pideg as “El Puerto de Japon” - the Japanese Port. On March 2, 1850, the province of La Union was created by Governor–General Antonio Maria Blanco.
