Daraga Church

Church in Daraga

Set on a hill splendidly overlooking Mt Mayon is the baroque-style Nuestra Senora de la Porteria church in Daraga, constructed completely from volcanic rock in 1773 and with detailed sculpted reliefs on the columns. Surviving residents of Cagsawa moved to this parish after their church was buried in the 1814 Mayon eruption.
