“Historical place with nice view of Mayon Volcano”
Review of Cagsawa Ruins Park

Cagsawa Ruins Park

From Daraga, it's an 8 peso fare to the ruins. You may choose to walk the short length (not more than 15 minutes walk by average pace) between the entrance to cagsaua park or take a trike. The view is nice with good information plastered along the walls of the remaining bell church regarding the church's tragic past. TIP: for budget travelers eat some Pacit Bato near the opening of the stretch of walk, their native pancit plus soda is only 15-20 pesos. Pretty filling already. There's ATV also available for those who'd like to reach the foot of Mayon.

View the ruins with the majestic Mayon Volcano as background. Lots of souvenir items sold at affordable prices. About 30-40 minutes from the airport.

you see people from all walks of life visiting a great historical place in Albay. There is no other church in the Philippines with such a history of tragedy due to the eruption of Mt. Mayon that has become one or the major tourist must see in Albay other than the beautiful places to explore in the province.

With the strong support of our local officials Gov. Joey Sarte Salceda, Cong. Al Francis Bichara, Mayor Rosal (Legaspi) and Mayor Juacian of Daraga, we can expect more tourist coming to our beloved province.

Entrance fee was 10pesos per person plus 10pesos parking if u park inside the gates. There is also a parking area in front of the stalls that sell souvenirs but it would be better to park inside the gate. Beautiful site to have pictures taken. Washrooms available.

Was a long drive thru heavy traffic to see the ruins of a tiny church - got a headache from all the traffic polution only to arrive at a tourist site that took all of 2 minutes to explore.
