One of the Philippines’most popular tourist attractions is the Cagsawa Ruins. It is the remnant of an 18th century Franciscan church built in 1724 yet destroyed by the 1814 eruption of the Mayon Volcano. It is located in Barangay Busay, Cagsawa, in the municipality of Daraga, Albay, Philippines.
You will enjoy the classic view of Mayon Volcano with the Cagsawa belfry in front. The belfry is the only part of the Cagsawa Church that remains standing up to this date.
You can also visit Galeria de Cagsawa, a small gallery where you can see different pictures of the area. Some pictures show what the area looked like before the eruption of Mayon volcano more than 200 years ago.
There are several souvenir shops offering different shirts, paintings, handcrafted key chains, refrigerator magnets, bags, among others. And if you want to try something adventurous, try riding an ATV. It is a rough terrain encounter where you will drive along rocky areas and even shallow waterways. This is a lot of fun for older kids.
