We rode the bus from Naga to Legazpi. We enjoyed the view of Mayon Volcano with the Cagsawa belfry in front and nearby you can find several souvenir shops offering a colorful assortment of native products. I bought a sling bag for myself. 😊

Great for photo souvenirs. The site has many photographers with many trick shots. Gives the visitor an idea of the might of Mt. Mayon. Many stalls offer varieties of pili nuts,and local Bicol handycrafts with occasional fruit in season.

Reasonably close to city so easy to bet to. Definitely should be included in a half or full day programme.

The place provides a great view of the Mayon Volcano. If you want to have a good picture of the Queen. Although it is a bit sad how this place was once a town and now just part of the history of the said province.

The Museum is very limited in artifacts and things to see the best part of the visit are the views of the Volcano. I think that there are more opportunities to trek or bike trail on paths around the volcano.

The place provides a great view of the Mayon Volcano. It also offers ATV rides for the more adventurous type. The place is picturesque but if one would recall that an entire town was wiped out, it will leave you with a mixed feeling.

Offers a historical perspective of Cagsawa and Legazpi. Has a good view of Mayon volcano (could be wrapped in clouds on some days). Ask a photographer in the place to take some trick shots of you. Some unique things sold here e.g. pumice stone made...More

The weather was really good when I went here. I got to see the cone-shaped volcano. The people were really helpful with taking photos. It has lots of souvenir shops and you get a lot of discount when you buy a lot.
