How do you say "ruins" in spanish [by ruins I mean the ancient Roman ruins, the physical ruings of great buildings, not "collapse"] ? I haven't been able to find a good spanish translation.

    P.S. La Real Academia Española, being the ultimate authority on the Spanish language, has this to say:

    ruina.

    (Del lat. ruīna, de ruĕre, caer).

    1. f. Acción de caer o destruirse algo.

    2. f. Pérdida grande de los bienes de fortuna.

    3. f. Destrozo, perdición, decadencia y caimiento de una persona, familia, comunidad o Estado.

    4. f. Causa de esta caída, decadencia o perdición, así en lo físico como en lo moral.

    5. f. pl. Restos de uno o más edificios arruinados.
