Malacanang Of The North, Ilocos Norte Province

3.8
#3 of 11 in Historic Sites in Ilocos Norte Province
A mansion overlooking the sea, Malacanang Of The North once served as home of former president Ferdinand E. Marcos. Today, it functions as a museum detailing the turbulent political situation when Marcos ruled under martial law--which ended with a revolution in 1986. Tour guides on hand can answer all of your questions, or you can read the brochures and signs in several languages. If you're there just for the architecture and art, walk around by yourself and admire numerous paintings on the walls.

  • This place was worth a visit years ago. This time, the house is just a memory since the items originally that were placed there are substituted with photos. There's a lakeview from the second floor for phot ops. There's also additional entrance fee of P10 for children and P30 for adults. You can skip this place.
  • Not recommended for Anti-Marcos people. The place is full of Marcos Memorabilia from old dresses and the accomplishment of the Marcos adminsitration before.
  • Great historical place to visit in Paoay. History is very well preserved. Hopefully it can be visited and maintenaned until the next generation.
  • Its wonderful place. Would love to go again Clean good people
  • It gives me goosebumps when were here, im speechless. The late President Ferdinand Marcos is intelligent, he wants the best for the Philippines but the Aquinos destoryed it
