Esglesia de Santa Maria, Cadaques

#4 of 12 in Things to do in Cadaques
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.
