Esglesia de Santa Maria, Cadaques

(4.3/5 based on 380 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.

  • Of course a must for a walk in Cadaqués: small street goes up, and this pretty white Church asked here. A beautiful altarpiece (too bad you can't turn it on!) and a few other secondary just as lovely! Maybe you'll have the chance to meet a nice man who will show you that the Crown of the Virgin above the door lights up like no magic with the Sun passing through! Don't hesitate to spend a nice time!

  • Baroque impressive the little church Santa Maria dominates the beautiful village of Cadaqués. It is reached through a maze of cobbled streets lined with white houses typical of the country of which some limed facades are covered with extraordinary Bougainvilleas in blossom until Christmas. Are you going there stroll and enjoy a beautiful view on the courtyard of the Church.

  • Climb through the narrow cobbled streets and a little out on the Hill and a small church. City and sea views from the front of the Church is a small square.
