Finally I happened to visit this church again. It has beautiful scene of Mayon Volcano. But its quite difficult to go here because of its location. You need to walk uphill just to be here.

I'm only seeing this view in post cards and school projects of mine. But now, I get the chance to see and capture this view myself. You should go very early for clear blue sky background :)

The church was wonderful :) It is an ancient church and it felt like Philippine history again. Thankful to have visited the church and if you are lucky, you could see the Mayon Volcano from afar.
