  • This church is on top of a hill. Expect to get some exercise if you are planning to walk. Great view of Mayon volcano. 
  • 拉加教堂是一座历史很悠久的巴洛克式教堂,整点5点的时候教堂的钟被敲响,然后人们在牧师的带领下在教堂门口祈祷,有趣的是很多当地人带着自己家的狗狗去参加,实在看不懂是什么的仪式,乍一看还以为是狗狗们的聚会,哈哈哈... 
  • I fell in love with the rustic ambience of the church. It also gives the perfect scenery of the Mayon Volcano which makes it a must visit church. 
  • A must-visit place when in Daraga. You have a good view of Mayon Volcano from this church atop a hill. Place is romantic at sunset and sunrise. Visit the church before or after the crowd gets there. Don't forget your camera!
