    entrance fee - php20. it's beside the entrance to the lignon hill park. please go in the late afternoon, 4pm onwards. we went there around 2pm and even with an umbrella, we still got sunburned. there are bikes and boats for rent, a playground, and a couple of food stalls.

  • Mayon Rest House

    by michy29 Written Apr 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you have the time, hire a car and a driver to take you to this place. It is about an hour from Legaspi City. Mayon Rest House is a few hundred meters above the foot of the Mayon. From here, you will see the entire city of Legaspi, Sto. Domingo and parts of bacacay. A worthy visit. I have been there a years ago, we went in the afternoon, only allowing us an hour before it gets dark. It is best to go there in the morning so you can get good photos. also if you go in the afternoon and decides to head back late, be sure to have a sweater with you. it gets cold in this place.

    Cagsawa Church Ruins

    by rmcuesta Updated Feb 22, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In 1814, Mt. Mayon, in the province of Albay, the Philippines, erupted and devastated the surrounding communities. This is what remained of the Cagsawa church, whose bellfry has remained standing as a mute testimony of the enormous disaster caused by flowing lava. Some 1,200 people sought sanctuary in the church, thinking that they would be saved from the fury of Mayon volcano. All of them died. One could imagine that, in their last moment, they struggled to climb to this bellfry as others below tried to pull them down. It must be a tragic, horrifying experience.

    Cagsawa Ruins

    by waoza Written May 14, 2007

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Do not miss the Cagsawa Ruins and its famous bell tower. There was a big eruption couple of centuries ago, leaving only the bell tower of the church. The rest of the church was buried under the lava along with its priests and nuns. Also, it gives one of the most stunning views of Mt. Mayon.

    Hiking at Lignon Hill

    by imee Written Aug 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the place where the locals usually do their jogging or just simply walking. On top of the hill it offers a great view of the city of Legaspi, the Gulf of Albay and of course the Mt. Mayon.

    The station for Mayon Volcano Observatory is also located here. As of this writing, the Mayon volcano is having mild eruptions(http://www.phivolcs.dost.gov.ph/Volcano/Volcanolist/mayon.htm)

    the boys selling mayon pictures in Cagsawa are well trained to take pictures, ask for the trick shots and they will guide you through. look for King (aka King Kong), he took our pictures (attached).

    These photo was taken along the road of 'Daraga, Albay' leaving Legaspi City. That was 8:30 in the morning, the best time to view the volcan being clear and uncoverd with clouds.
