Mayon Volcano – renowned as the “Perfect Cone” because of its almost symmetric conical shape, the mountain was declared a national park and a protected landscape on July 20, 1938.
Mayon Volcano is located in Legaspi, Albay which is an hour drive away from Naga, 88 Kilometers to be more precise. Unfortunately, climbing Mayon is not permitted as of the moment due to the danger of eruption, as we all know, the volcano has been very active recently.
Penafrancia Festival – a fluvial procession at the end of the novena caps the feast. The image is carried in a pagoda, on its return journey to the basilica, where a mass is held. Along the route, people shout “Viva La Virgen!”
The image is surrounded by a battalion of exclusively male devotees, for Bicolano folk custom holds that no woman, Filipina or foreigner, may board the barge with the Virgin as this will surely spell disaster.
Caramoan Island – is a group of islands and islets scattered in the Pacific Ocean, endowed with nature’s beauty and preserved by its seclusion.
Global reality show franchise “Survivor” made it a must-try for nature lovers. Caramoan is blessed with numerous of islands with lagoons, fine white sands, rocks, rich marine life and limestone cliffs. Truly an unspoiled and unexploited paradise.
