Went to the historical site at night. The main building had an eerie feel to it. Would be a great venue for a Halloween party for sure. The grounds near the pond had a totally different vibe. The pond had benches around it, where couples...More

This is one of the nice spot to visit when you are around Bacolod. Peaceful place and very romantic when they lit up the lights around sunset. Perfect for those who want to do a prenup photoshoot.

The first thing that Ive noticed was its cleanliness and peaceful sorroundings. Maybe its because there were just few people around. This place is very good for prenup pictorial. The museum's view is just beautiful and very calm to look at. I think it is...More

This is a fantastic location! The grounds surrounding the ruins is beautifully landscaped with families and friends frolicking in this faraway garden oasis. I believe the entrance fee was P100 per head and it's well worth it. The ruins tells an interesting story of a...More

The P50 charge was legit. They are an independent operator and are not connected with The RUINS. They are the only accredited shuttle service that goes from GO Hotel - The RUINS - Robinson’s Mall.

A living evidence of the great culture of Bacolodian’s during Spanish era. No words can ever explain the beauty of the ruins..

Unfortunately not as we do not have a picnic area with the proper facilities. We also do not allow outside food and drinks to be brought in except water.
