The Ruins (Talisay City, Negros Occidental)



I first saw The Ruins on a local cooking TV show.  I fell in love with the whitish-golden ruins set upon a very green field.  It looks like heaven.  I said to myself on that day that I will visit that place soon, and then my wish came true within the same year!  Thank you so much Lord!!!

It was June when we went to Bacolod.  Unfortunately, it was raining when we got there, so we weren't able to take photos of The Ruins turning gold when afternoon sun hits 4 PM.  And do you think I was depressed?  Of course not!  I am planning to go back anyway!  Hahaha!  I am going to capture The Ruins in it's golden glory with my savvy DSLR camera soon! 

Thank you so much for my friend Syvel and her friends who were so accommodating.  They even took the responsibility of acting as our tour guides.  They even gave us a food tour!  Bacolod is best for food trip!  I will feature some Bacolod restaurants on my blog soon.  

Here are some photos.  Enjoy!

Don Mariano Lacson built The Ruins in honor of his first wife, Maria Braga Lacson.

The Ruins also offers delicious food!  They're absolutely delicious!  The ambiance is also exquisite!  You can also rent the whole area for special occasions like parties, weddings, or corporate meetings.  See you there!!!


Live a good life, la buena vida!!!
