But unknown to many is the Bahay na Tisa in Bacoor, dubbed as the first Malacanang. It is where President Emilio Aguinaldo first put up his office as president. It is a luxurious 19th century bato-na-bato and is named as Bahay na Tisa after the material used as its roofing called “tisa”. This is an instagram-worthy place for history buffs.
