the Palace in the Sky

 went to Tagaytay a couple of days ago with my sister and her friend. it was my second time to visit the place, i was still 15 the first time i was there and we only stayed in Tagaytay Picnic Grove. this time, we visited People's Park in the Sky, which was formerly known as the Palace in the Sky.

i remember we were supposed to visit Palace in the sky back then but we didnt have the time. good thing, we now had the chance to visit it.. i am just fascinated by the place.. its situated in the peak of the mountain.

and if you must know, i am always fascinated by any historical landmarks, and ive always wanted to learn more of the history of our country.. i am currently searching for the history of the Palace in the Sky, i know, it was previously owned by former president Marcos, but i want to know more of its history, and maybe some original pictures of it..

anyway, while i was searching for its history in google, i can only find just few information, like it was an unfinished mansion of the former president Marcos. it was purposely built as a presidential guest house for the former US pres Ronald Reagan. and since Reagan, never  came , the mansion was never finished too.. *sigh*

and while i continue my journey of finding the history of this place, i found an intriguing part of its history. that it was originally built for the pope but the Pope declined to stay there saying that his visit wasn't  a state visit but a pastoral visit, so he stayed in the cardinal's residence.. years later, they changed the story, and stated that it was built for the former US president.. i had no idea why they had to do that, that is one of the reason why i want to know more of its history.. and i really want to see original pictures of the palace.. maybe more information about it, events that took place, etc...


i just hope that the government will take care of this place, this is such a great tourist attraction,but it seems to me that the government have forgotten this place.. if they wont finish the building, maybe a little repainting and cleaning would do...
