Malacanang Palace in Manila


Malacanang Palace is located in Manila and is the official residence of the President of the Philippines.

Malacanang used to be the home of a wealthy Spanish merchant before it became the Philippines’ version of the “White House”. Its name is derived from the Philippine phrase “may lakan diyan” or in English, “There is a nobleman there”.
