PCDSPO’s Online Observance of Malacañan Palace’s Sesquicentennial Thru Stamp

We're gladly to experience first hand the history and heritage of this famous house which belongs to the Filipino people. We enjoin the public to take part in this commemoration and celebration of Sesquicentennial thru stamp. 




Tomorrow, we observe the sesquicentennial of Malacañan Palace as official residence of the chief executive of the Philippines. In fulfillment of its mandate as custodian of the institutional memory of the Philippine Presidency, the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office (PCDSPO) is launching an online commemoration to mark one hundred fifty years since its conversion from rest house to official residence of Spanish and American Governors-General, and later Philippine Presidents.

A timeline on the history of Malacañan Palace from both an institutional and architectural perspective will be published on the Presidential Museum and Library (PML) website (www.malacanang.gov.ph).

In continuation of its popular colorization project, PCDSPO will also be posting colorized archival photographs of Palace vistas and significant events such as the visit of Edward, Prince of Wales.

In addition, an animated architectural evolution of the Palace will be uploaded by visiting the PML website and its other social media sites (tumblr.malacanang.gov.ph & facebook.com/malacanang) or by booking a visit (http://malacanang.gov.ph/contact-us/) to experience first hand the history and heritage of this great house which belongs to the Filipino people.
