Who could resist souvenir shops? When you're visiting a place, it's hard not to buy some mementos to bring home to family and friends. These stores are a few of the many stalls inside the Cagsawa Ruins selling Bicol shirts, hand-crafted bags and home decor products made from natural fibers, and other local gifts and flavors. Bicol is famous for their spicy flavors--carved chili pepper key chains and magnets were a hit to my family and friends.

Naturally, you need to visit Cagsawa Ruins first before you hit the souvenir shops.:p Cagsawa Ruins is located in Daraga, Albay, an 8-hour bus ride from Manila or a 55-minute flight from Manila to Legazpi City. It is the remains of Cagsawa town and surrounding areas which were buried in lava during the 1814 eruption of Mayon Volcano. About 1,200 townfolks persished and only this church belfry survived the devastating fury of Mayon.
