Before I totally get busy again (in preparation for the New Year), I wanna show you one of the landmarks we visited in Laoag, Ilocos Norte during our 2-day stay there.
The Malacanang of the North (“Malacanang Ti Amianan”) served as the official residence/mansion of the late President Ferdinand Marcos whenever he’s in Ilocos. It’s located in Suba, Paoay and sits on a land overlooking the beautiful Paoay Lake.
Below are some of the pictures we took of the former President’s official residence, which was generally impressive and showcased the best of Ilocano and Spanish design and craftmanship:
The mansion’s bedrooms were equally grand and impressive:
The tour of the mansion was a very interesting one, with lots of design ideas that interior designers/architects will surely find inspiration from.
All that (and more) for a fee of just P20.00 (per head)! Sulit na sulit!
The Malacanang of the North is open Tuesdays to Sundays, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM only.
