Cagsawa Ruins.

Standard

The Cagsawa Ruins are the remnants of an 18th century Franciscan Church. Built in 1724 and destroyed by the 1814 eruption of the Mayon Volcano. Located in Barangay Busay, Cagsawa, in the Municipality of Daraga, Albay,Philippines.

Cagsawa Church Belfry

I finally came face to face with this famous tourist spot that I have only seen in textbooks. Since what was left of the Cagsawa church is the belfry, it is somehow creepy to note that we are actually standing on the roof of a buried church.

A lot of Ate and Kuyas are around to assist us with the photo taking. They even have a lot of trick shot ideas and we tried some.

Too bad we were not able to catch a glimpse of the Mt. Mayon in the background due to the fog but we still had a great time visiting this place. Once again, it makes me realize that the Philippines is truly a beautiful place.
