    Adjacent to the Cagsawa bell tower lies the ruins of the Cagsawa church. Although a big portion of the bell tower survived the onslaught of hot lava, the church itself did not. What remained are rock formations which could had been its walls and pillars. It was out of curiousity that we found ourselves inside the church's ruins. We circled the...
