Only the belfry tower of the church is left above the ground in the AFTERMATH of the eruption of Mayon Volcano in 1814. About 15,000 people, including the 1,200 people who sought shelter inside the church, perished in this devastation. The tower has become a famous landmark and tourist attraction in the country. (Note: the tower was being cleansed, hence the scaffolds.)
The picture below was taken during my first visit in 1988 or 20 years ago. The Mayon Volcano was partly visible at the backdrop.
