This is a really old church. For historic buffs, it’s a great example of Spanish architecture. The view of Mayon Volcano is unbeatable. It just needs to be kept cleaner and visitors need to respect this place of worship.

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.

What I love about traveling across provinces in the Philippines is that every point is easily reachable with public transporation. It is a 10-minute tricycle ride from 1st Colonial uphill General Luna road. They implement fixed fare and it only costs Php 40 from the...More

Get mesmerized with the facade of this very old church. The unique structure is a beauty itself. The view from the patio and the parking area is an added attraction as you could see the beauty of Mayon Volcano .

It was great being a religous person, having visited the church and the view of the Mayon Volcano. Vehicle parking space are adequate and a peaceful place especially in the morning during weekdays.
