Very nice church. There is a special light effect when you walk from the front aisle to the exit door. Look at the Virgin, you will see the lights shining around her head!

We walked around Cadaques and came across this beautiful church that overlooks the town. Did not manage to get inside as it was closed. Beautiful on the outside.

The alter is spectacular, and the view over the bay from the front of the cathedral is really special too. If the gate is locked, drop a Euro in the box on the left and open the gate on the far right.

Took the train from Girona, to Figueres, then the bus to Cadaques. Walked from the bus station up the hill to one of the highest points of the city. There is where the church is located. Besides a stunning alter inside the small church there is a great view of the city and one of it's bays. If, when you enter the church the inside iron gate is locked do not despair. You did not walk all the way for nothing. Look to the left in the back corner and there is a coin machine in which you can place a one Euro coin and the lights come on in the church. It allows you to see the inside and take photos if you wish, however you cannot walk into the sanctuary. Still worth it!

At just about the highest point in the town you do need to climb up to this. It is as are so many of these structures very beautiful. You don't need to be religious to appreciate the beauty. Some nice views over the harbour from the terrace outside too.
