The Ruins is the remains of the ancestral home mansion of the family of Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson and Maria Braga Lacson. The mansion was built in early 1900s and inspired by Italian architecture. WWII Filipino guerrillas employed by the US Armed forces intentionally set the building on fire in order to prevent invading Japanese forces from being able to use the building as a headquarters. The intention was to burn it to the ground, while the fire did render the building uninhabitable the skeleton of the mansion still remains. (Talisay City, Negros Occidental, Philippines)
