‘Lez Go to Legazpi!

Legazpi City is home to the majestic 20 million-year-old Mayon Volcano. One will get a glimpse of this perfectly-shaped volcano no matter where he or she is in Legazpi. As an active volcano, puffs of smoke are often seen coming out from its peak, causing a small cloud of smoke to hang just above it. However, the cloud of smoke that forms above the volcano makes the view more scenic. At the base of the volcano is surrounded by rice fields, creeks, and rivers.

The Mayon Volcano may be the main attraction in Legazpi City, but there are a lot more beautiful and exciting places to see and explore in this part of the Bicol region.

Cagsawa Ruins Park

For someone unaware of the history of the Cagsawa Ruins, he or she might think that the old structure often seen in front of the Mayon Volcano in many postcards is just an early church that has withstood time.  What we are looking at is just the belfry of the church.
