This church is a perfect spot, with the dramatic view of the mayon vulcano in the background! The exterior of the church is very nice but the interior doesn't looks original, the contrast with the old exterior is to big.

It''s a long uphill trek to the church from the main street but worth it. The detailed sculptures in the façade is worth several pictures. The inside of the church is plain, typical of churches that are this old. The view of Mayon on a clear day, juxtaposed the church, is amazing.

It is a pretty church, but unless you can appreciate its history and architecture, its just another photo stop.

This one of the beautiful church in the Bicol region. At front of the church you can see a nice view of Mayon volcano (you can also see Cagsawa ruins from here). This place is relaxing. There is also a restaurant nearby called Red Labuyo. Getting to the church is easy. There's a little uphill walk like around 5-10mins coming... More

Comparable to Miagao in splendor. Location is perfect. We drove up because the church is high on a hill. Good view of Mayon. Try to come early to see thr volcano without the thick cloud cover.

Excellent views of the city and Mayon Volcano. Church, too, is a landmark unto itself! Although I was there for a wedding, there was time to sightsee and explore the area, only to discover that the church was a work of art itself.

The Daraga Parish Church, officially known as Nuestra Senora de la Porteria (or Our Lady of the Gate) stands tall at the top of the municipality. It offers an excellent view of the majestic Mayon Volcano. There's a cafe nearby where you can leisurely eat your snack and sip your drink as you fully appreciate and marvel at the awesome... More

The church is located at the top of a hill. So the view of the mt Mayon becomes even more breathtaking. Good venue for picture taking too. If you are gonna bring your telephoto lenses, i recommend that u point them to the bell. The bells of the church are very antique. The church per se is very nostalgic. Looks... More

In my mind, if in Cagsawa, we only able to see the bell tower and the church remaining wall among the ruins, Daraga Church may resemble the once focal place of worship in Cagsawa.

Check out the stone carvings ... This church takes its spot among the best historical and cultural churches of the Philippines.
