Esglesia de Santa Maria, Cadaques
(4.3/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Situated in the heart of Cadeques's old town, Esglesia de Santa Maria is the town's parochial cathedral. Built in the late Gothic style of the mid-16th century on the highest point of the historic nucleus, the cathedral stands out amid the winding, narrow streets that surround it. The pure white facade is typical of Costa Brava architecture, and features a wrought-iron door bearing symbols of the town and the sea. Visits are allowed only during Saturday evening and Sunday morning masses, but you can peek in at the altarpiece from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., and 4 to 4:45 p.m. every day. The Cadaques International Music Festival often holds classical music concerts here in the summer; contact the tourist office for information and tickets. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Cadaques holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Esglesia de Santa Maria and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Entered in the Church to do what comes being a visit routine and us found with Andreu, a Lord of the area that also is the watchmaker of the Church. We explained step by step secrets and stories that leave the Church we saw Cadaqués in a different way... all an account... recommend stories to the people that put this gentleman's tour of Church Guide, has been a real pleasure, have been 1 hour and a half and almost never got to eat (visiting a church!) Wonderful place, but without Andreu had not been the same... insurance...

  • When it comes to Cadaqués, obviously we just visit the Santa Maria. The altarpiece is wonderful, so many beautiful details. It's fabulous. And the view from the front is very nice also. The altarpiece in Santa Maria is like that of the church Notre-Dame-des-Anges, which is also nice to Collioure. The Interior is of course beautiful, but need to see the Church of Santa Maria of several streets in Cadaqués. I come in this little paradise since 2001, so I know pretty well the village. So I advise to see the Santa Maria for the following streets: carrer Verge de Montserrat, carrer Solitari and carrer Guillola. And also since the carrer Eduard Marquina (side bar Habana).
