Malacañang ti Amianan - Ilocondia extra 1

Ilocos is home to the Marcoses. I admire them for preserving the old school atmosphere despite the urbanization. One of the tourists destination is Ilocos is the Malacanang of the North. Home to the Marcoses, this rest house was recently refurbished and turned into a museum. From the design aesthetic to the views surely, I will definitely have a total R&R in this place. Located in Paoay, the official residence of the Marcoses offers  a breath taking view of the Paoay Lake which reminds me of Sound of Music. i forgot how much was the entrance fee Copyright applies.

  1. I'm not a loyalist, but I admire Ferdinand Marcos, and I just LOVE the pyscopathic quirkiness of Imelda. Sa lahat na siguro ng self-delusional psychopaths, si Imelda lang ang may class, beauty, charm and intelligence. hahaha!

    Anyway, I love the mansion. Siguro mas maganda siya noon nung residential pa siya. Iba na kasi kapag ginawang museum. Parang home for the undead.

    did you check out the closets? baka may skeletons pa diyan! hahaha!

  3. Nabisita ko lamang yung museo kung saan nakaratay ang pinaniniwalaang labi ni Pres. Marcos. May iba pa palang mansion sila sa Ilocos na ginawang museo, di namin nadaanan yan, sayang.
