Iconic view and lots of pasalubong stores nearby

This is one of the best place where you can gaze at the Mayon Volcano and buy souvenirs at the same time

Good place to visit. This was our last stop during our mayon 360 tour. Unfortunately we were already exhausted when we arrived here so I was not able to enjoy the place too much. Had some pictures taken here and there. Lots of thrift shops where you can buy souvenirs and pasalubong for your loved ones. The view is ok... More

We just spent a mere 10 minutes at this place We just took a picture and left. Its nice for those who are first timers in Bicol but to me there are other places where youcan get a better view of Mayon. Being a touristicon as it is,expect the crowd!

More fun in phl, the beautiful scenery of mayon and ruins of cagsawa church are perfect match for those who wants to travel to bicol, the atv's are also a must try there following the lava route of the volcano.

Visitors can enjoy the classic postcard view of Mayon Volcano with the Cagsawa belfry in front. Aside from the ruined belfry and the huge volcanic boulders around the area, visitors can also find several souvenir shops offering a colorful assortment of native products

I never grow tired of going to this place just to see Mayon. This is the first stop whenever I entertain guests who are first timers in Bicol. I even had my maternity shoot done here, with the Mayon as my backdrop =)

The Cagsawa National Museum was great place to visit because of the history some of the remnaints are still in the ground. The place got some souveniers to buy to bring back to our love one.

Been here early by 6am. Place is accesible however, has parking fee of 10pesos. Few locals also offer ATV rentals tothe mountain. All are entertaining and food stalls are everywhere the park. Youwill also observe the big rock that they call, live stone. Wish i can come back here.
