Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A visit to Albay is not complete without dropping by the iconic Cagsawa Ruins with the majestic Mayon Volcano in the horizon. The park charges an entrance fee of P35 per person, and visitors will be greeted by stalls selling souvenir items as well as official photographers hired by the local government. This place was where we also tasted sili ice cream for the first time. At P50 per cup, it is guaranteed to put your mouth on fire. If visiting the park during the summer months, bringing bottled water and an umbrella is highly recommended.

This Franciscan, Baroque style church was built in 1587 but destroyed by Dutch pirates in 1636. Rebuilt in 1724 and destroyed again in including the town of Cagsaua during the Mayon volcano in 1814. On a clear day you will see the majestic Mt. Mayon volcano from here. The ruins are quite confusing as you would find it a challenge in orienting where the entrance and altar use to be. Lots of foliage on the ruins during my visit. Hopefully it gets cleared to protect the ruins. The soil feels like compact beach sand but is actually ashfall. Climbing the bellfry is not allowed, but access to the church ruins is.

This place gets busy leading up to mid morning so it is advise to go early. From the main road, it is walkable, trikes are available to and fro this area, nonetheless, those with vehicles are guaranteed a parking space in the area. This is a sight to see once in your life. #RP

Spoiler alert: I had always thought that one needed to trek a good distance from the town proper to get to this historic site. When my colleague from Legazpi told me that we could drop by Cagsawa ruins on the way back from a client, I was concerned that I was in office clothes. I was curious when he turned into a gated compound and parked in the lot. As I turned the corner, I was shocked to see the bell tower just in front of me with Mayon in the background, albeit barely visible through the haze, As it was drizzling that day.

Got some photo ops before the rain started to fall. A must if you come to Albay to see Mayon.

The view of Mayon was stunning. There is no better majestic volcano than this. Cagsawa Ruins is one of the better locations to view this. My only drawback is that its too crowded, and its hard to park due to the volume of tourists. We were there on a summer and its quite hot.

With the Mayon Volcano backdrop, it's a breathtaking site. Entrance fee is cheap. Be wary for those who have difficulty walking, plenty of walking on uneven ground & steps. It's a brief stop unless you decide to try the ATV. Definitely is a must see when in Legazpi.

When you think about Mayon Volcano, Bicol, and Albay there is no way you cannot associate it with Cagsawa Ruins. This sends me back when I was a kid, It never fails to amaze me thinking about how that belfry signifies Bicol, Mayon and Albay. Its a good thing they we're able to maintain it through all those times, this is still a place to go.

There are a lot of stalls where you can buy souvenirs, food and try the Sili Ice Cream, and new attaction like the ATV adventure.

It's a well recommended place.

Nice park, free access, a perfect spot to take a picture with the remainings of the church, but also with the volcano that provoked the disaster. Plenty of little shops at the entrance, with a lot to offer at low prices. Do not miss the crispy pilli and the chili ice cream.

How to get there: Take a jeep bound for Guinobatan or Camalig. Tell the driver to drop you off at Cagsawa Ruins. Once you are dropped off, you will have to take a tricycle (P7 each) to the site itself. The entrance is something like P10 each.

It is best to go there either early morning or late afternoon because at other times, the sun may be too harsh (bad photos) or the volcano will be heavily covered with clouds. Ask one of the people there to do "trick shots" for you. We tipped the kid who did this for us P100 for 15 shots.

cagsawa ruins was my first attraction in mind to visit when we were in legazpi. in fact we visited the place twice, because i was so impressed with the young tour guides in the area taking trick shots on us with the cagsawa ruins as background.on my second visit i tried to do my own trick shots and its kinda hard at first because you have to have the right timing before you click thecamera and under a sweltering heat of the sun.it was suggested that you go there 6 in the morning to see the fantastic view of Mayon volcano unobstructed by passing clouds.
