The Ruins of Bacolod

Filipinos are fond of taking photos at any given time - everywhere. And it's nice that the country is blessed not just with natural but man-made wonders as well. In Talisay City in Bacolod, there stand a mansion built in the 1900's by the sugar baron, Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson (1865-1948). The mansion or popularly known to locals as "The Ruins" is fast becoming an attraction of the city.
The architectural style of "The Ruins" is of  Italianate with neo-Romanesque columns. It has a very close resemblance to the fa├žade of Carnegie Hall in New York City. You may probably ask as to why this mansion is called by many as The Ruins. It was truly in ruins and was practically abandoned for many years, not until it was restored to its original glory with some modification by the Lacsons who inherited the land where The Ruins stands. This is a picture-perfect backdrop that I'm sure Filipinos and other people who like to be in front of the camera will surely love.
