MALACA�ANG PALACE

Malaca�ang Palace (officially Malaca�ang Palace, colloquially "Malaca�ang" Filipino: Palasyo ng Malakanyang is the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the Philippines located in the capital city of Manila. The Palace is in fact a complex of buildings built largely in Spanish colonial and Neo-classical style.

The original structure was built in 1750 by Don Lu�s Rocha as a summer house along the Pasig River. It was purchased by the state in 1825 as the summer residence for the Spanish Governor-General. After the June 3, 1863 earthquake destroyed the Palacio del Gobernador (Governor's Palace) in the walled city of Manila, it became the Governor-General's official residence. After sovereignty over the Islands was ceded to the United States in 1898, it became the residence of the American Governors, with General Wesley Merritt being the first.
