Bacolod Ruins

Who would have thought that an old house, that is totally burnt, destined for total demolition, would actually turn out to be a very nice tourist attraction? This one's located in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental. A pre war colonial house built by a very rich sugar baron. The story was, during the Second World War, the Philippines and American forces were on the verge of defeat by the Japanese army. The house was a very attractive structure to host the oncoming conquerors. So, the owner and the americans burned it down so it won't be used by the Japanese.

It became a forgotten structure, until now. The young owners initially decided to tear it down. Luckily they saw the beauty of the thing, and instead converted it into a tourist attraction. Weddings and events are now held in the area.
