Good vantage point of Mayon

Walking distance from the highway if you don't have a lot of things to carry. We went late afternoon so there were few tourists left and Mayon was first covered with clouds. The... read more

There was not much to see except the ruins. It was our s cond time to visit the place so there was nothing new. The experience would be better for a first timer. Nontheless, it was nice to see the place again more than 40 years after our last visit. What made this experience productive was the presence of many... More

The Cagsawa Ruins Park is a great little place to wander and have lunch before/after another activity. It will take at most two hours to explore the ruins and tourist stands that sell a variety of items from sili ice cream to Bicol express to knives, magnets, baskets, and T-shirts. Arrive very early for the best chance of a clear... More

The sky cleared up after most of the tourists left and we were able to get a good shot pf Mayon. Entrance fee of P20 for adults. There... More

The runs of this great 16th century church built by the Franciscan monks is a tribute to thier resolve It was burnt down by the dutch in 1636 and then rebuilt again in 1724. But the bigger the problem arose in 1814 when the Mayon volcano eruption killing everybody that sheltered in the chujrch. Only the belfry of the church... More

This was one of the stops from my self-made itinerary. It was really easy to get here. It also helped that I had a (local) friend who served as my tour guide. From Legazpi, we took a jeep then got off near the entrance. At the entrance, there are tricycles that will take you inside. Once there you can just... More

I had the opportunity to tour around this place when I was invited for a talk by our branch office. This place has amazing view of Mt Mayon. I LOVE IT!

Not quite sure how some reviewers have spoken this down. You cannot dress up history and the result of natural power. Just visit and read the brief on the history, then stand back and imagine being there in such times. Amazing but yet still sad.

A visit to see Mayon Volcano naturally requires a side-trip to this. It's highlight are the ruins of the old church, belltower and rectory. See how the old church building design were no match for the volcano, but somehow managed to withstand time. A true "walk-back-in-time"experience.

One of the most popular sites in Legazpi. Besides from the bell and Mt. Mayon, you can also purchase souvenirs, eat Chili Ice Cream and have ATV ride which we did with Bicol Adventure ATV Ride.
