The mansion had 9 rooms (if I'm not mistaken) with the girls on the 2nd floor and the boys on the ground floor. The materials used in making the mansion were not ordinary materials. In fact, they were exported from another country. Imagine how rich Don Marcelo was!
On World War II, because of fear that the mansion might end up being a Japanese headquarters, they burnt it. Unfortunately, the mansion remained strong so they added more to make the fire go more intense. It took 3 days to burn the mansion, by the way. That's how thick the woods used. The marbled wall was never burnt, still smooth to the skin.

By the way, be reminded that if you took a tricycle from Ruins to the main road, it would cost 15-25 pesos. Overpricing again. Sigh!
