Visit this place if you are in Ilocos. Aside from seeing the actual office /house that Ex president Marcos built, you will learn important matters and accomplishments he gave to the country. Indeed a strong and smart leader .
The structure sits on a vast land, with paoay lake at the back. The lake they say was formed after an earthquake struck and the water submerged the community.

The effort to preserve this historical site is commendable but there are signs of neglect. The management of the site could include more information and materials. Though it was built during the time of Marcos, it is nonetheless for the people to see a glimpse of their history specially the younger generation.
The need to promote the place is wanting.

My second time to visit this iconic structure in Paoay. This residence of the former Philippine president is now turned into a museum. An entry fee of P40 gives you access to most of the rooms inside this mansion. Infographics are strewn about the rooms depicting the achievements, lavish lifestyle, government programs, up to the downfall and exile of the Marcos family. The upkeep of this place is done well preserving most of the original design, furnishings, and the grounds. A stunning view of Paoay lake is the highlight of the structure. There are refreshments available on the ground floor. Try the famous Ilocos empanada P50. This is a must see place to visit aside from the church, which Paoay is best known for.
