Located near the border between Talisay and Bacolod City, The Ruins is the remains of the mansion built by Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson in memory of his wife Maria Braga Lacson who died during childbirth. The mansion stands in a 440-hectare sugar plantation and is in Italianate architecture with neo-Romanesque columns and shell-inspired decor around the top edges of the mansion. It was built in the early 1900s but it was set on fire by the Filipino guerilla fighters under the American command in 1942 during World War II to prevent Japanese forces from using it as their military headquarters.
Although only the skeletal frame was left of the once grand mansion, it remains one of the most well-preserved and majestic spots in Negros Occidental. This attraction is open for tourists and can be booked for events and photoshoots.
