View of Mt Mayon

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

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.

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.

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
