First time I've been here, it's raining, we didn't had the tour that time because according to the guide, it's muddy. The second time, we were lucky enough to have a sunny day. This place is a great for photo ops and of course, if you are a person that loves something classic, this place is for you to visit... More

My korean friend loved the place and he said that he wants to visit the place everyday if he had to. But what we don't the most is that when we sat on the grass given that we are already tired...

The Ruins is a very nice place to behold and experience.There's nothing much to do but lots to see. It lives up to it's reputation as the Taj Mahal of our country.

A cheap place to visit being only 100PHP per person. Beautiful to look at in the day and with amazing lights at night. Make sure the taste the delicious sugar cane juice with a bit of calamansi.

The preserved mansion is nice,its amazing. Its a must place/attraction if you go to Bacolod. Since Philippines is a tropical country and the place is surrounded by plantations of sugar cane, be sure to wear comfortable clothes

Didn't really encounter much other tourists or employee other than the gentleman that collects the entrance fee. Place is well maintained but had parts of the place closed off.

You may never think this place exist amid the city until you see it with your eyes. The Ruins proudly stands with the greenery in the background. It made you think how people live in the past. Everything here is refreshing. Even the food are great.

It was my 2nd time to visit the ruins and im still in awe when looking at the ruins. Its picture perfect view is very nice! You should never miss visiting this place when you go to Bacolod! Though they now ask for 100 pesos entrance fee (too expensive). The management should lower down the price or provide more amenities... More

I last visited this place in 2010 when it could really be called "The Ruins" - skeletal remains of a mansion that burned down years ago, surrounded by a lush green garden. I was really surprised to find out that the place had changed so much over the course of almost seven years. First of all, they were charging a... More

Surprisingly scenic and interesting albeit relatively new building. Great pictures if you go when the crowd is limited
