FB Page Dr. Dave’s Filipino Scene recounts : Until now I have never seen a pic of the Cagsawa Church in this condition. This is an old photo of the Cagsawa Church with the Mayon Volcano in the background. ** This pic shared with us by Sophia’s lolo **
What is unique about this, for me, is that the exterior of the Cagsawa Church [ located in Daraga, Albay in the Bicol region of the Philippines ] is still intact… Known around the world as “The perfect cone,” the name of the volcano came from the local word for beautiful, (maayon).On February 1, 1814, the volcano erupted, burying the nearby Cagsawa Church under volcanic debris. This eruption is considered the most devastating eruption of this volcano.I visited the Mayon Volcano and Cagsawa Ruins on my very first trip to the Philippines.

Thank you for the pingback 😉
Love your post. I found yours by way of Zemanta and have added yours to a related post of mine. Hope you could take a look and leave your insight. Thank you.
I’ve been to the ruin a few times, and have always felt emotional, knowing people are buried there. There is a museum, a small one, and I remember looking inside to see bones of human beings. I believe they were called Burial Jars.
