I always love Silay City. It’s one city that I want ted to explore on foot. I am always fascinated seeing these rows and rows of ancestral houses, especially along the Cinco de Noviembre street.
Looking at these structures, You would know how affluent the people of Silay before. You would learn how they value the importance of arts.
Many of the houses in Silay are still privately owned are are still being used by the famiies, so most of the time these ancestral houses are still off limits to visitors, except for the Balay Negrense which has already been converted into a museum.
The Hofilena house, although, it is still being used by the family today, has decided to open its doors to the public and made their house into a museum. It is said to be the first ancestral house in Silay to open its doors to the public.
And when in Negros Occidental, another attraction that should not be missed is The Ruins in Talisay. I have been to this place countless of times already, but as always, I am still amazed at its beauty. I just can’t imagine how grand it was during its heyday.
So when you have the chance to visit the province of Negros Occidental, I highly suggest that you do aphotowalk and explore the Paris og Negros on foot. As always, the best way to experience a city is by walking.
