Great location for viewing Mayon

I visited this church at dusk. I is located on a small hill with close to a perfect view of Mayon. Interesting architecture.

Took a tricycle ride from 1st Colonial Grill Restaurant. Upon arriving at the foot of the church, the Mayon View literally wow-ed me. One of the most beautiful church I've been to.

The patron saint is called "Our Lady of the Gate".... Older church which is made of volcanic rocks and lime. The church sits up the hill and again, the Mt. Mayon can be viewed from the front of the church.

This church is nestled on top of the hill so if you visited during the day you'll be able to see the view of the city. Try to visit even if you're not into church.

This place is an antique. Situated over a hill overlooking across the Mayon, I feel this here is the most breathtaking view in Legaspi to admire both historical landmarks/landscapes. This church's walls, structure, its setting tells a story how long ago this church was built, its location and purpose serving the community - then and now. It's definitely worth the... More

A visit to this church can be both historically enlightening and spiritually refreshing depending on the visitor's personal disposition. While its location provides a convenient vantage point for observing the not so distant Mayon; the view from here is at most satisfactory as nothing really beats the view you get of the same when you're up close. It's a long... More

This is a historical Spanish-era church but sadly, it is losing its historical significance due to its deterioration. I don’t know if there’s not much support from the local government. They are asking for donations for the preservation and rehabilitation of the church. I love the different sculptures (Lord Jesus, Mother Mary and the saints) at the lobby where each... More

The church has an overlooking view of the volcano. You must go there early morning so that you have clear view of Mt Mayon.
