Don't miss the opportunity to visit this quaint church with an amazing view of the Mayon Volcano. Feel the cool breeze as it caress your face. They say you are favored if you are able to see the tip of Mayon on a sunny day. Good luck!!

We were take here by our guide primarily as for yet another view of Mount Mayon, but we did end up spending more time in the church. The town of Daraga may have been populated by survivors of the 1814 Mayon eruption but the church was built 40 years before in the 1770s by the Franciscan order. It had apparently... More

Great place for a view of the ever-elusive Mayon (we arrived in January and weather was not ideal) and the church is gorgeous captured in pictures. There are candles for intentions and you can light these for prayers

One of the few churches in the Philippines designed in Churrigueresque architectural style. It is a must-visit as its ornate carvings provide a romantic appeal to the view all around, which, as what others say, includes the majestic Mayon Volcano.

The church is situated in a hill with a fantastic view of Mayon volcano. It is the same church that was featured in "I will survive" teleserye last yr. You will surely fell in love with this church.

I fell in love with the rustic ambience of the church. It also gives the perfect scenery of the Mayon Volcano which makes it a must visit church.

The church is located on top of a hill so going there on foot will be a little challenging to those who are not used to elevated walks. There are tricycles though that can bring you there if you have no car. The church was made in honor of Our Lady of the Gate. We were fortunate enough to be... More

The church has a commanding view of Mt. Mayon and has withstood all its eruptions since it was built as a replacement of the Cagsawa church. I wish they can hang more art pieces and religious articles that will showcase its rich history.
