Government should limit all these pasalubong stores, there's just too many in the area. Unfortunately, Mayon Volcano did not show up on the day of our visit. It was an ok experience. There's nothing to do here really but just take a photo for souvenir.

Been here couple of times but this is the first time me and my wife visited this tourist spot together with our employees in bicol...kindda educational tour before our christmas party... I believe they enjoyed since they took a lot of pictures of them as souvenirs.. Appreciating nature available in bicol.

Entrance was 20 peso only and you can see the old ruins, some tourist shops, Mayon Volcano and some rice fields.

If the clouds are covering the volcano then never mind. Otherwise it might be a good photo op but just that.

The Cagsawa Ruins are the remnants of a 16th-century Franciscan church, the Cagsawa church. These ruins sit below the backdrop of Mount Mayon, and a great photo opportunity for people visiting the area

The place is iconic, so that speaks volumes already. It was well-preserved too. The place is also complete, from parkings, photographers, and souvenir shops. It is a good tourist attraction

The park is a "Must" stop-over when travelling to or through Albay as it offers this wonderful chance of a very close and picturesque view of Majestic Mayon Volcano, via the ruins of Casagwa church. The park likewise offer a lot of shades from the scorching heat of the sun, and a lot of greens which enhances the awesome scenery.... More

Come here either in the morning or late afternoon so it won't be too hot. Probably not enjoyable if it is raining or cloudy, but I would still recommend it. Friendly for elderly or young children as long as you have a ride. It won't involve much walking. I went here with my elderly mum (just no option on the... More

Visiting the place for education tour was worth it and I recommend it to other schools. A supplementary lesson can be prepared after visiting the place for Science Subject, Religion and Social Studies.

The Cagsawa Ruins is indeed one of the most anticipated by our group. Needless to say, it is in every tourist's bucket list when traveling to Bicol. I was a bit disappointed to see the stalls and shops nearby ever since they turned it into a park as it diminished the beauty and mystery of the grounds. The toilets or... More
