Esglesia de Santa Maria, Cadaques

4.3
#4 of 11 in Things to do in Cadaques
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.

    What about ... beautiful, the altar is impressive, the Church dominates the Pueblo and from there the view is wonderful. This is a magical place! Wherever you look at Cadaqués fascinates you. Shame about the services in General seem to have remained in the years 70 today's prices!

    After having mounted the Carrer del Calls typical artery while pebbles we discover the Church of Cadaqués if present in this context. A monumental altarpiece in this modest church. Sculptures of characters, Angels all in gold. Beautiful

    I knew in advance what to expect and was still blown away. For a comparatively small church in a seaside village, that altar is simply mind-blowing!  more »
