Anyone visiting the area normally ends up going here. But to be honest when you get here there is very little to do or see. But if you have time to spare and nothing better to do, you may as well pop in. But there are better things to spend your time doing.

Visit the Cagsawa National Museum in the Bicol region of the beautiful Philippines. The weather is great with a good piece of Philippine history. Place is safe and clean. The museum is organized with friendly and hospitable staff. They speak good english and very knowledgeable of the Philippine history. Go and enjoy learning more a piece of history.

This is one of the best place where you can gaze at the Mayon Volcano and buy souvenirs at the same time

Good place to visit. This was our last stop during our mayon 360 tour. Unfortunately we were already exhausted when we arrived here so I was not able to enjoy the place too much. Had some pictures taken here and there. Lots of thrift shops where you can buy souvenirs and pasalubong for your loved ones. The view is ok... More

We just spent a mere 10 minutes at this place We just took a picture and left. Its nice for those who are first timers in Bicol but to me there are other places where youcan get a better view of Mayon. Being a touristicon as it is,expect the crowd!

More fun in phl, the beautiful scenery of mayon and ruins of cagsawa church are perfect match for those who wants to travel to bicol, the atv's are also a must try there following the lava route of the volcano.

We initially went there in the afteroon but it was busy with tourists. The place was small - I thought the area... More

Visitors can enjoy the classic postcard view of Mayon Volcano with the Cagsawa belfry in front. Aside from the ruined belfry and the huge volcanic boulders around the area, visitors can also find several souvenir shops offering a colorful assortment of native products
