First stop for tourists visiting the PMA would be the Relics Point where vintage tanks, historical military weapons and artillery can be found. From the Philippine Military Academy in Loakan, we drove straight to The Mansion. It took us 15 minutes to get there.The Mansion was built in 1908 for governor-generals of the United States. It was destroyed in 1945 during the Battle for the Liberation of the Philippines. The government of the Republic of the Philippines later rebuilt and improved the structure in 1947. Since then, it has become the official summer residence of the President of the Philippines.
