Legazpi City is located at the southern part of Bicol region between Naga and Sorsogon. Legaspi, Albay is considered as one of the most sought after places in Bicol because it is where the world-renowned Mayon Volcano is located. The name Legazpi is after a Spanish leader named Don Miguel Lopez de Legazpi. Today, Legazpi is not just known for Mayon but also for its natural wonders and fast-progressing city.
You can go to Legazpi in many ways, either by land, by air, or by water. Legazpi is home to many of Bicol's most sumptuous dishes, picturesque views, and hospitable people.

However, we can see the whole region of Bicol today being resilient and ever progressive still.
