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. The historical 1814 Mayon eruption that took the life and land of many Bicolanos has left its mark on the beaches and landscape of the city, most especially to its people. However, we can see the whole region of Bicol today being resilient and ever progressive still.

When in Legazpi, the Cagsawa Ruins is a must see. This historical site was once a full-sized church. But due to the perils of the 1814 eruption, only the upper part or the tower of the church remains and almost 2/3 of the church is covered in volcanic ashes. Apart from the Mayon, many other tourist spots were developed surrounding the area like the Mayon Volcano National Park, Mayon Rest House Observatory and the Ligñon Hill. Tourist will also enjoy the Japanese Tunnel located near the Ligñon Hill because of the unique experience it offers you. The Japanese tunnel was created by Japanese soldiers as a storage for their military weapons and equipment during the war.

Legazpi's also has churches that you can visit like the St. Raphael Church and the Caraga Church. Legazpi is also a haven for eco-parks and natural wonders. If you want to have an adventure-filled vacation, then trips to the Ligñon Hill, Albay Park and Wildlife, and Legazpi City Ecology Park are necessary. There you can enjoy trekking, zip lining, and rappelling.

Legazpi also caters to your taste buds with the best of Bicol's specialties like the Laing, Bicol express, and many more! Legazpi is a city with interesting historical past and experiences. The city had endured decades of natural calamities but we can always see them starting over again and striving for progress. This is what makes Legazpi an even worthier vacation place—its richness and its culture, it’s like no other!
