The Ruins in Talisay City Philippines

One of the reasons Talisay City is visited by tourists is a place called The Ruins. The Ruins is what remained of the mansion that was built by Don Mariano to commemorate the death of his wife Maria Braga. This was where he and his unmarried children resided for many years.

The house is known for its Italian architecture and neo-Romanesque columns. The initials of the couple (M and M) were inscribed onto the posts of the mansion. The top edges of the structure feature nautical inspired theme in honor of Maria Braga’s father who was captain of a ship.
