This is a gorgeous church in the heart of Cadaques. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find a meditation space complete with zafus set up in a side chapel. After a long day of driving and walking, a 20 minute unplanned meditation session...More

It is all about the altar. Put one Euro in the slot and sit back and admire the workmanship in front of you. This is a memorable church. Not a masterpiece but thought provoking.

on top of the town, with a very nice view across the bay, if you are looking to kill time before lunch or after to digest the great food, it's a nice stop!

If in Cadaques, go to the church. The altar is worth the visit alone. You can pay a euro and have them turn on the lights for a few minutes (7 i think) should it be dark inside. Pretty impressive for such a diminutive church...More

Come to see the altar for yourself. It is impossible to describe. Stay and pray. If you can attend a concert here, as we did, it is priceless!

This white stone, fisherman's church has dominated this lovely Costa Brava village since the 13th century. It was mostly destroyed in 1543 and then rebuilt and renovated almost every century since. Inside are ornate, baroque homages to Jesus, the Virgin Mary and others. They are...More
