(the picture shows also the Cagsawa ruins, near Legaspi City)  

"The 1814 eruption was recorded to be worst eruption of Mt. Mayon. Some 1,200 people, who took refuge and sought the sanctuary of the church during the eruption, died all when the church was engulfed by the flowing lava. Only the Cagsawa church belfry remains today. It is a grim reminder of the event, that took place and many people come to see the belfry as a reminder of times past. Through all the developments done by the local government, the Cagsawa church belfry remains standing, with the giant stones spewed by Mt. Mayon around and with the history of the region buried underneath. The place is now called Cagsawa Park. It is managed today by the municipal government of Daraga, Albay.
