Here's something to look forward to...if you will visit Bacolod.Did you know that the Luzuriaga Cemetery is the only cemetery in the world which is in the middle of two highways.....actually busy highways...Its is bounded by Lopez Jaena Street and Burgos avenue.
I just thought...why and how did this thing happen...the local Government can just scrap that cemetery....for blocking the highways. But here's the answer I found.......
The Luzuriaga family is very prominent clan in Negros whose Patriarch Don Eusebio Ruiz de Luzuriaga is said to be from Basque Country in Spain and France. His son Jose Ruiz de Luzuriaga became part of the Philippine history when he became President of the Constituent assembly of the short lived Negros Republic.
It is said that the hacienda of Jose de Luzuriaga is where the Bacolod City hall stands.
No questions asked......end of the topic.......
