Malacanang Of The North, Ilocos Norte Province
(3.7/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.
