Palazio del Gobernador





Plaza del Gobernador


This is Palazio del Gobernador...formerly the home of Manuel Estacio de Venegas, a governor’s aide, the two-storey structure was expropriated and subsequently made the official residence and office of the Spanish governor generals in 1645 until an earthquake brought it down in 1863. It lay in ruins for almost a century until the Land Bank of the Philippines built an 8-storey building on the site in 1978. The office of the Intramuros Administration is presently housed here.
