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.

Cagsawa Ruins is near Mayon, and on a clear day you can see the volcano fully. It's a historical place, as ore than a century ago when Mayon erupted, this was what remained of the church and convent. 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

I never grow tired of going to this place just to see Mayon. This is the first stop whenever I entertain guests who are first timers in Bicol. I even had my maternity shoot done here, with the Mayon as my backdrop =)

The Cagsawa National Museum was great place to visit because of the history some of the remnaints are still in the ground. The place got some souveniers to buy to bring back to our love one.

Been here early by 6am. Place is accesible however, has parking fee of 10pesos. Few locals also offer ATV rentals tothe mountain. All are entertaining and food stalls are everywhere the park. Youwill also observe the big rock that they call, live stone. Wish i can come back here.

When I was still younger (gradeschooler days) Mt Mayon is always been mentioned by our teachers, the photo of the Volcano is always featured on our Arts and Culture Books and even in Math class as they said the perfect coned volacano. Since then, I always thought it would be very impossible for me to see the famous mt Mayon... More

It's like an open bonnet of a luxury car- you just gotta look. Be ready to pay an entrance fee per head. Usually the driver is welcomed free if he says he's just bringing them paying tourists. I'd argue it's not the best viewing place for the truly imposing Mayon volcano, but it might be the most popular. So you... More

We enjoyed our visit to Cagsawa Ruins. We appreciate its history & the people. We also enjoyed viewing the Mayon Volcano from the ruins/park. We had a great time.
