Malacañang of the North

Malacañang of the North is also known as Malacañang ti Amianan among Ilocanos. This was built during President Marcos' era. And being dubbed as his country, Ilocos Norte is home to many of his remnants and one of these is the Malacañang of the North. According to Ilocano's Marcos love to stay here rather than Malacañang Palace.

Malacañang of the North
Before entering the Malacañang, you have to pay Php 30.00 for maintaining the Malacañang. This was built in 1977 as project of Madam Imelda Marcos for her husband who's turning 60 that time. This is also one of the twenty-nine (29) houses build by Marcoses during their two(2) decades of power. From the name itself, it served as the first Family's house when they stayed in Ilocos and of their guests. You can see here their beds, furnitures, Madam Imelda's collection and more.

It is within a 5-hectare property and overlooks the calm water of Paoay Lake wherein guests can do some water sports during their stay.

I love viewing this place as I reminisce the past. I can't help but adore Madam Imelda's beauty....very alluring! Maybe that's the reason Mr. Marcos love her so much. Proof is written in this picture.

I have seen that place and I realized how lavish their life really is. The house was so big and the view was great. It was probably a great place to stay when they used to live there.
