This beautiful baroque church has been standing since the 1700s. It has a rich history because this is where the townspeople fled when the Cagsawa church was buried by the massive eruption.

This was our last destination when we went to bicol for a family trip. It's the nearest in our lodge but we chose to make it the last so we can attend mass before we head for a 12-hr trip.

This church is regarded as one of the most visited old churches in Philippines and in Bicol.

The church's natural facade remains it's beauty despite of the reconstruction from the original church. It's made of volcanic stones.

Relics of the saints are on the left side of the church, also the candle stand. But if you wish to light a candle there, make sure to buy candles outside the church for there were no candle there.

We came minutes before 2pm so we made it to the start of the mass. It was a great experience because the celebrant is on his thanksgiving for being ordained as a priest for almost a year that time. He brought six more priests from different provinces all over the Philippines, that might made the mass as holy as ever.

The interior of the church isn't that captivating like the other churches. But digging onto its history and looking at the beauty from the outside, it will be worth all the ride from Manila to Daraga, considering there is a view of Mayon Volcano on the right side. What a blessed place.
