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 Ocidental. 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.
