Root to the Sugar Industry

The Philippines is amongst the largest producer of cane sugar in the world. Globally, it ranked as the ninth largest while it placed second largest in the ASEAN, next only to Thailand, as of 2017. For a country that produces tons of sugars annually, it must have come from sources where there is a myriad of sugar canes.

Despite being an archipelago of several thousand islands, one island-province had always been a source of almost half of this produce—Negros Occidental.

But knowing the history of the country, it was not Visayas—to which the province of Negros Occidental belongs—that had been the source of these crops. Rather, it was the lower region—that is, in Mindanao—that is said to be the birthplace of the sugar harvest in the country, only to spread across the higher regions of Visayas and Luzon.

Although history claims that much of Visayas were already flourishing with sugar canes even before the Spanish colonizers set foot on the land, the first aborigines—the Negritos—certainly did not know about the cultivation of sugar cane as a crop.

There was a time in the history of the Philippines, therefore, that Negros Occidental was not a great source of sugar cane as it is known to this day. It might be obscure to most people outside of Talisay, but this once sleepy Sitio was the first planting bed which gave rise to an industry for the whole province.

History accounts for the enterprising priest of Spain, Fray Cuenca, to be the driving force behind sugar cane cultivation in Talisay and its subsequent improvement.

Talisay City Tourist Spots | Things to do

Although the burgeoning sugar industry might best describe Talisay, this continually developing city is also known for some tourist-worthy places that indeed attract some visitors from across the country.

Regarded as the “Taj Mahal” of Negros Occidental for its similarity in the story as to why it was built—for the loving memory of a sugar baron’s Portuguese wife—The Ruins is a relic of a 1920’s mansion whose remains was as a result of the land’s harsh history involving the Second World War.

Not rebuilt to be lived in again, The Ruins has become its own landmark to where it had always erected.
