The Ruins (Talisay City, Negros Occidental, PH)

Ruins, for me are the beginning. With the debris, you can construct new ideas. They are symbols of a beginning. — Anselm Kiefer

Unembellished and just literally a skeleton of an ancestral house, this Italianate architectural vestige is a sight to behold all-day and night long.

The Ruins, as it is simply called, is a relic of a once imposing mansion owned by Don Mariano Lacson in the City of Talisay, Negros Occidental. Today, it is one of the most iconic landmarks in the province attracting a lot of tourists.

 

Everything within The Ruins compound is picturesque. Being there emanates a romantic feeling, whether you visit during broad daylight, during sundown or at nighttime. What makes it more impressive and interesting, are the stories within the neo-Romanesque columns of this home.

So if you happen to be in Negros Occidental, visit the grandeur that is The Ruins.

 

***I am fortunate to have visited ths place 3 times. I told myself not to make a simple write-up about this place unless I have seen its magnificence during the nighttime. And so, during my last visit, I made sure I went there at night, and boy! It didn’t disappoint at all.
