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.

During our day out, doing the tourist routine, we stopped by Daraga church. The church appeared run down and not well maintained on the outside. We spent most of our time focused on the Volcano. I wouldn't have been disappointed if I missed this attraction.

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...More
