Visiting the Malacañang of the North and Paoay Lake

Built as the official residence of President Ferdinand Marcos in Ilocos, Malacañang of the North is located in Suba, Paoay and sits on a land overlooking the beautiful Paoay Lake. It is also known as “Malacanang Ti Amianan” in local dialect.

The property is one of the many properties of the Marcoses that sequestered by the government when President Marcos was removed from power. After 20 years, it is now under the care of the provincial Government of Ilocos Norte. After undergoing renovations and restorations, Malacañang of the North is opened to public as the province's museum. The museum is open from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM from Tuesdays to Sundays. It has an entrance fee of Php 20.00 collected for the maintenance of the mansion. There was a student assistant/provincial scholar who served as our tour guide inside.


There are many things to learn about the history, culture and also about the Marcoses.

My favorite part is the balcony overlooking the Paoay lake. How nice it is to read a book seated on one of these chairs.
