The majestic columns and steps of the Negros Occidental Provincial Capitol is a favorite postcard picture. At the foreground is the Provincial Lagoon, a man-made body of water, with a park and golden carabao/buffalo statues which add color to that beautiful scene. Add some slides and a children’s playground on the side, Christmas trees and floating Christmas lights at the lagoon. That’s the scene during Christmas season.
The Provincial Capitol becomes a fusion of Spanish architecture and modern lights and decors. The capitol building is a familiar structure that connects the city’s present to its past. Being the capital of Negros Occidental, Bacolod City enjoys this landmark in its boundary. The Provincial Capitol houses the office of the governor and other offices that run the affairs of Negros Occidental.
