FAMOUS LANDMARK

Talisay City is perhaps known for the famous landmark, The Ruins, which is actually a mansion owned by Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson, a sugar baron who built the structure in memory of his wife who died during the pregnancy of their 11th child. During World War 2, the structure was burned by Filipino guerillas to prevent its use by the Japanese. PHOTO BY ABBY PALMONES
