Man is the most composite of all creatures. Aside from offering a breathtaking view of green-reforested mountains and hills; the topographically well-endowed Aritao, our beloved second class municipality and its composite people assert that cultural differences within our town are valuable and should be preserved. The metaphoric melting pot literally brings different elements “melting together” into a harmonious whole with a common culture is applied to our famous town- Aritao.
Our town previously called Ajanas and later changed to Aritao, after an Isinay word Ari-Tau which means Our King has the ethnic minority Isinai as the original residents of the town. After decades, there was an influx of numerous immigrants from Pangasinan, Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur, Nueva Ecija, Bulacan and Mountain Provinces and they settled here. Thus making the town a melting pot…different cultures mix, but remain distinct.
Now, this melting pot goes advanced via the World Wide Web…Why?

And it allows you to browse more comprehensive informations like the present image of our town, promotional services of the offices, and likewise provides instant gratification to the achievements of the municipality in various competitions and undertakings. These are the prime reasons why we need a Website. And to sum up it all, this webpage will highlight our municipality in our endeavor to good governance known today as Good Housekeeping.
