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!

I spent a few days near this church, and I loved it's chimes ringing through the city to mark the time. A trip inside showed that it contains one of the most ornate and gorgeous gold altars I've ever seen.

Absolutely worth a look, and a quick prayer of thanksgiving if you are inclined to be thankful while on vacation like I am!

A beautiful example of a Baroque altar. Seen one church seen them all? No, they all have a different feel to them and their alcoves seem to shimmer.

Spectacular views from outside across the ay and rooftops of Cadaques, the walk up through the pretty cobble streets is worth it in itself. The church was closed and pitch dark!! Luckily I saw the box to the left as you enter, you can pay to switch on the lights and reveal the splendor of the altar!!!!!

Walk up the neat small streets to the church. It is free and only 1 euro to turn on altar lights. Good photo opportunities from outside the church of the city and harbor.
