The Cagsawa Ruins are one of the most important pieces of history in Legazpi, and it's one of the few tourist attractions close to the city that gets a sizeable number of visitors!
The ruins are incredibly dramatic, as the crumbling bell tower of the old church still stands tall, while much of the remaining building has slowly fallen away. The church was built by the Spanish in the 16th century, and was for years the centre of religion in the region. A volcanic eruption - you can see the distinct cone of Mount Mayon just a few miles away! - destroyed the village of Cagsawa, and left only the stones of the church standing. If you go anywhere in Legazpi, go here!

Absolutely, one of the must-see things to do in Legaspi! We paid a visit to Cagsawa Ruins, and were mesmerized by its wondrous, historic ruins. And, with the iconic Mayon Volcano in the background, Cagsawa is indeed the ultimate spot for pictorials and selfies in Legaspi. A word of advice, don’t forget to try their heart-pumping and mind-blowing ATV rides, if you want to add a dose of adventure and excitement to your visit in Cagsawa Ruins
