In 1814 Mt Mayon (the world's most beautiful / perfect volcano) exploded. Rather than run like hell, 1000 people sheltered here in Cagsawa Church which, after a couple of hours, collapsed killing them all - and not in a very nice way. Today the bell tower stands as a monument to their souls - and a testament to the practical limits of religious faith.
