THE RUINS: Taj Mahal of Negros

THE RUINS. Known as the Taj Mahal of Negros, is located in the borders of Talisay and Bacolod City, it is one of the best ancestral homes in the Island of Negros Occidental. The mansion was owned by Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson for his first wife, Maria Braga, a Portuguese from Macau whom he met in his vacations in Hongkong.

It shows the remains of the mansion during World War II wherein the family intentionally burned the house so that the Japanese people won’t use it as their headquarters. Today, the mansion or “The Ruins” is a must-see attraction in the Island of Negros. Wedding, Birthdays, and some events are also held in that mansion.



If you are in Bacolod am, sure 99% of any hired vehicles knew where ruin is.If you are  commuting, you can hire a tricycle, either at Bangga Pepsi or at Bangga Rose Lawns (Memorial Park) and tell the driver to take you to the Ruins

The RUINS is open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., Mondays through Sundays including holidays. It has a restaurant which serves Mediterranean food and operates from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Ruins  has an 18-hole Mini-Golf Course as a recreational fun activity for the whole family.
