Looked good from the outside !!

Unfortunately it was closed for refurbishment while I was there, real shame as I would really have liked to see the inside.

The church is very close to the port and the train station, you might want to include it after your walk on promenade and the port before hitting to the train station. It's working but there's very little info about the hours so proceed at your own risk and don't be disappointed if you can't get inside.

I walked a very long way to find I could only view this church from the outside 😔 not worth the walk as there was little information outside and I couldn't see anything through the glass because of the sun

Bothered to walk all the way down to the older part of Salou, only to find we could not get into the church, the building itself is ok, but expected it to b e set in a piazza or square etc not just down a side street. Cannot comment on the interior, but would not go out of my way... More

Only seen from outside as the church was closed, but was a nice building in a little side street opposite the marina.

Was a pretty little church from the outside but was disappointed it wasnt open to go inside. It was in the middle of Salou too in amongst narrow streets so getting a good photo was a little difficult

We read the book about that magic cathedral and it was very interesting to be there and imagining all the events that occurred within these walls and streets surrounding.

If you are catholic it's worth to go for a mass. But is a modern church inicially built in the 18th century in a simple baroc style, the steeple in the 1930 and enlarged in the 1950. In these dates, Salou was a little village with a population of just some hundreds.
