The RUINS (at night)

Pictures in the internet of the The Ruins in Talisay City, Negros Occidental is usually a day shoot. I've always wondered what The Ruins would look at night. And I satisfied my curiosity last April 2015.

The Ruins is what remained of the grand mansion of Don Mariano Lacson. The house was built after the death of his first wife, Maria Braga.

The grand mansion was put into fire on the early part of World War II so that it cannot be used as headquarters of the invading Japanese soldiers.

The fire burned the mansion’s roof and the 2-inch thick wooden floors but the foundations remained standing, thanks to its over-sized steelbars and the meticulous way of pouring the A-grade mixture of concrete.

According to historians, the mansion was burning for three days!

Nowadays, it is one of the best tourist spots in Negros!
When in Bacolod, try to visit The Ruins and possibly stay after sunset to see its grandeur!

Enjoy The Ruins! =)
