Known as “The Ruins”, this striking structure in the Philippines is the skeletal remains of the home of young sugar baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson. Located in Talisay City, Negros Occidental, the grand house was reportedly set alight by US forces during World War Two in a bid to prevent the Japanese using it as a headquarters. Dating to the 1900s and beautifully preserved as a tourist attraction, the completely see-through Ruins is arguably one of the most wonderful and compelling abandoned mansions in the world.
