Esglesia de Santa Maria, Cadaques

Categories: Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • Beautiful small church with a very large and magnificent altarpiece with lots of characters. It's the baroque type but it's beautiful. See the comments on the site of Cadaqués which explains everything that the we can see

  • Cadaques has a small but spectacular Church overlooking the sea. He taxed of the altar is spectacular, if you be a good while watching can appreciate thousand details that do not pass desaprecibidos. They note that there there are years and years and many people work. A curiosity that explained the head of the Church that was there at that time. If you get back to the altar and gaze at the entrance where this Virgin up, its lighted Crown is seen. But as you advance towards the exit door of the Crown ceases to be illuminated, is an optical effect. Cadaqués is pure magic!

  • There's NOTHING that I did not like about Cadaques, including this beautiful little church. It occupies a central spot in the village. You can't miss it and it's worth a peek and a prayer! :-)
