Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Catalonia / Province of Girona / Costa Brava / Cadaques / Esglesia de Santa Maria
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 Esglesia de Santa Maria and beyond, use our Cadaques road trip website to get the most from your Cadaques vacation.

Esglesia de Santa Maria reviews
Nice view from the top of the Esglesia. That made it worth the hike. The inside was dark and unlike other reviewers, I was not particularly impressed. But I would go back up just to get some photos... more »
Cadaqués is a lovely village with narrow cobblestone streets and a lovely church with very beautiful ornaments. Dali used to visit here a lot, a many other artists. It is not far from Port Lligat... more »
Beautiful 16C church with a stunning viewpoint above Cadaques looks over the town and the sea. When we were there there was classical guitar playing under the trees which made it very atmospheric. Church interior is dominated by a huge gilded 18C altarpiece which, when lit (coin in the slot donation) is quite amazing. Quite a stiff walk uphill to the church over the old slate pavements from the shoreline but it really is worth the effort.
Lovely church, the walk up to the church it's self is wonderful and the views from the church are beautiful. We'll worth a visit.
