  • If you want some peace of mind and at the same time enjoy the picturesque city of Albay, Daraga Church is spot on the right place for you.. Find some serene time and appreciate the beauty of Mayon Volcano after your one on one talk with God. 😉
  • This historic Spanish-era church gives you a stunning picturesque view of Mt. Mayon. It is also a perfect place to visit during your pilgrimages in the town of Albay.
  • I love the church at the top of the hill. Beside is the majestic Mayon Volcano
  • The church is made of volcanic rocks, the facade is decorated with beautiful reliefs. The interior, however is modern.
  • Took a tricycle ride from 1st Colonial Grill Restaurant. Upon arriving at the foot of the church, the Mayon View amazed me. One of the most beautiful church I've been to with its carved intrinsic details.
