From the main road,you have to walk a few meters uphill to get to the church.It is situated in the highest section of the town.Understandably because this is where the faithfuls of Cagsawa Church transferred after the explosion of Mayon in 1814.It is therefore a testament of Albaynon's strong faith.
DARAGA CHURCH Albay
Since on a hill,one can also have a good view of Mayon from here.Unfortunately, (again) Mayon was covered that day so we didn't get to have that dramatic church of the church and the volcano.Still is a beautiful sight to marvel at.It would have also been nice if we were to peek inside,sadly,it was closed that time.
From here,we contacted a tricyle to take us back to Embarkadero de Legazpi where our accommodation was.We initially haggled for 150pesos and we were happy coz it took us only 20minutes to get to our destination.The tricycle driver was clever to take us through inner roads so as not to get caught in slow moving traffic in the main roads.
We hurried to our rooms,quickly packed and headed to the airport........
