The church was closed for visitors on a weekday that we visited. The only accessible area was the wing containing the statues of the saints. This is a historical church of Baroque style and offers a great vantage point to photograph Mayon Volcano.

Philippines is known to be the foremost Catholic country in Asia. Filipinos has been known to have a strong faith, weathered by any calamity or trials but still unwavering. Just like the centuries old churches all over the country, which stood through time and disaster. The Church of Nuestra Señora de la Porteria (Our Lady of the Gate) or commonly... More

Beautiful and solemn church with the perfect view of Mayon Volcano. Better to go here at noon to view the Mayon.

Its quite a walk to get here. But everything would be very worth it when you see the Mayon Volcano. The church itself is so old and very beautiful too. Its a perfect place if you just one to be alone, or be with the one you love.

Nice place to view Mt Mayon and its surroundings and has some interesting carvings on the walls and it's cooler than outside too.

This is a beautiful old church on a hill. It is in the same town which is closest to the Cagsawa ruins at the foot of Mayon Volcano.
