Manila Diary: Palacio del Gobernador

Palacio del Gobernador is located infront of the Plaza de Roma in Intramuros. It currently house the offices of the Intramuros administration, Comelec and other agencies. Comelec used to occupy the next building when I was working here in late 1990's and when I visited last February 1, that space was just a vacant lot.
It was the residence and office of the governor general, way back in the 17th century, long before MalacaƱang housed the executive. For more on the history of Palacio del Gobernador, check this entry.
