Left abandoned for decades after the death of Don Victor Fernandez Gaston, Balay Negrense could give its visitors an eerie feeling the moment they step inside the house. Although it was restored and declared as a heritage house by the National Historical Institute, there are stories going around the city that this house is haunted. The rooms with mirrors will make you feel like you’re being watched or that someone might appear at any time. The house-museum closes before dark. If you stay for too long, you might hear the kalesa (horse-drawn vehicle) at the back of the house where it used to be parked.



How to get to Balay Negrense from Silay Airport: Find a van outside the airport that will drop you off in Silay City’s proper or town plaza. Pedicabs can be found anywhere in Silay. Ride one and ask the driver to bring you to Balay Negrense. The pedicab driver will drop you off right in front of Balay Negrense’s gate.


2. The Ruins

Who would’ve thought the beautiful Taj Mahal of Negros would evoke a spine-chilling feeling? In the past, The Ruins was actually a mansion, which was set on fire to prevent Japanese soldiers from being able to use it as their headquarters. Built by Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson for his wife who died while carrying their 11th child, the attraction still bears the tragic love story of the married couple. In fact, a lady in white was once captured in a photo by a tourist. She is believed to be the ghost of the sugar baron’s wife.

How to go to The Ruins from Silay Airport: Take the van going to Bacolod and get off at the Silay-Talisay Jeepney Terminal in front of the North Ceres Terminal. Then, ride a cab from the terminal and ask to be dropped off at the main entrance of The Ruins.



3. Provincial Capitol Office

Bacolod, Negros

The trapped souls that were found below the building are associated with the disturbing appearances and noises at night.

During World War II, the Provincial Capitol Office was occupied and used as a prison by the Japanese Imperial Army. After the war, an escape tunnel and human skeletons were found beneath the building. The guards who were stationed at night heard pounding of piano keys, footsteps on the stairs, dragging of chains, and doors shaking inside the building. Some also claim to have seen a headless priest, a Japanese soldier, and a huge dark creature known as the kapre (tree giant). They would suddenly appear, but when you try to look closely, you never see a face and they swiftly disappear.

How to go to the Provincial Capitol Lagoon from Silay Airport: Outside the airport, find a van that is bound for Bacolod City. Since the Provincial Capitol is located at the heart of the city, you can ask the driver to drop you off at the capitol. Get off at the North Capitol Road then walk a few meters to the main entrance of the building.


4. Patag Hospital

Operating hours: Monday to Sunday, 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

The reputation of Patag Hospital comes from the tragic events that have occurred in the battle of Patag. The hospital was the last stand of the Japanese forces during the war. The area was haunted with blood, terrifying screams, painful tears, and horrible stories for those who survived. Some locals would sometimes see and hear Japanese soldiers in torn clothes mumbling in their own language. The waterfall near the camping site was also named “Pulang Tubig” (Red Water) because it was where the blood of the Japanese soldiers streamed. Nowadays, the building serves as a backpackers’ lodge.



How to go to Patag Hospital from Silay Airport: Find a van outside Silay Airport that is bound for Silay proper. Get off at Prince Supermart. Beside the supermarket, you will see the Patag-Silay jeepney bus bound for Patag. Ride it and ask the driver to drop you off at the Patag Hospital. You will see the entrance of the hospital once you get off the bus.

The school is somehow ironically situated beside the San Sebastian Cathedral.

La Consolacion College Bacolod, a Catholic educational institution founded by three Augustinian Sisters of Our Lady of Consolation, was rumored to be a ground of supernatural entities. The school is also beside a cathedral, which might be tied to the horror that lives and dwells within the aged halls of the building. Rumor has it that one of the classrooms on the third floor building is haunted by a figure of a man—a floating burned man. To date, nobody knows why the ghost of the man disturbs and gives the students and teachers nightmares even when they’re awake.

How to get to La Consolacion College Bacolod from Silay Airport: Take the van that is bound for Bacolod and ask the driver to drop you at the main entrance of La Consolacion College in front of Bacolod Public Plaza.



Bacolod is known as the city of smiling people—but smiling people are not the only things you could find here. Try visiting these creepy sites and you might find a ghost with the perfect haunting smile.
