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.

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.

This church's location is very significant because the old church was located in a lower place that was almost covered by lava from one of the big eruptions of Mayon Volcano. This centuries-old church serves as a symbol of the Catholic faith in the area,...More

The church itself is a sight to behold-with intricate art similar to the church in Miag-ao. There are a lot of places in Albay where you can get a great view of Mayon but the view from thr church is one of the best. You...More
