St. John the Baptist Church was destroyed during the Mayon Volacano eruption in 1814. This church was first constructed in 1605 and reconstructed in 1837 and finished in 1845. One can see the beauty of the Mayon volacano by looking from its bell tower, it serves as a look out for the American troops during the World War II, in searching for the enemies. A memorial stone was placed inside the church in memory of the resident who died at the age of 115.
