From Philippine Daily Inquirer
50 years later, during the beginnings of World War II in Asia and Pacific, the San Fernando train station is a witness of the Bataan Death March where countless lives of Americans and Filipinos soldiers died of exhaustion or torture from the Japanese. These men fought bravely and gallantly in the service to their country and freedom of the land. After the horrendous five day march from Mariveles, Bataan to San Fernando, Pampanga. The exhausted and defeated troop embarked on a precarious train journey to Camp O' Donnell, Tarlac to be interned as prisoners of war there.

Old churches from the Spanish period built around around the 19th centuries are still in existence and are used by clergy till the modern times. There are many in the town of Bacolor that were buried in lahar in the early 1990s. Those that are preserved and declared a National Cultural Treasure by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines; Santa Monica and Santo Domingo parish churches in Mexico town; San Luis Gonzaga Parish Church in San Luis town; and San Bartolome Parish Church in Magalang town.

Another of the delicacies that any food lover should try is the "Camaru" or fried or sauteed crickets. the sauteed or fried crickets are eaten by most of the liquor drinkers. This the food taken with alcohol.
