The Mansion Baguio: Beyond the Gates

For security reasons it’s not open to the public, nevertheless, it is one of the most popular attractions in the City of Flowers. The Mansion is the official residence of the president of The Philippines located in Baguio City. There, you can see tourists taking photos by the gates, ensuring that the embossed lettering of The Mansion is included in the frame. Beyond the expanse of the manicured hill is a white-painted house, of Spanish colonial revival architecture, built in 1908. Even when you’re just looking outside you will be charmed for indeed it’s a beautiful sight. But The Mansion has so much more to offer. The first time I saw this place was in December of 2007. Just like everyone else I didn’t go any further than the gates. But in 2006 I wasn’t like everyone else. I’ve had the chance to stay in this place and saw the beauty hidden from the public view. I will share it with you today.
