The Ruins in Talisay City, Negros Occidental

It was my second time to visit "The Ruins" in Talisay City, Negros Occidental. But during my second visit I've learned so many things about it's history since there was a Tour Guide.  

The Tour Guide 
The Mansion  was built in 1900 in the center of an "Azucarera", owned by  Don Mariano Lacson for his first wife Maria Braga but when her first wife died  Don Mariano Lacson remarried and leave the Mansion to his ten siblings. The were ten rooms on the second floor.  During world war II they hired a Japanese garderner.  When they knew that it was an informant  for the Japanese Military the Guerellas decided to burned down the Mansion to avoid the Japanese Militaries from occupying  the Mansion. It was abandoned for many years but now it is one the most visited  tourist spots in Negros Occidental.
