Great church

Visited whilst a service was on which added to the experience. The flowers around the church were beautiful and a credit to the person(s) responsible.

from my hotel window. You can get in shortly before services but not during: unless of course you are a worshipper. DO NOT take photos inside the church. There is an interesting clock with only one hand

This church is located at the bottom of the Santa Barbara castle, is one of the oldest in Alicante and one of the most beautiful. Small and welcoming, mass every day at 19.30 if you want to have a real Spanish Catholic experience.

Nice architecture, quite small but visit it anyway if you're in old town. We stumbled upon in by accident.

I have been to Spain so many times but have never visited this place till last summer. I'm not a religious person nor my friends but still thought to visit here. Incredible architecture built in Gothic style that may be the reason some find it bit scary looking. But for me it was fabulous and interesting. I think it is... More

We have been here on a number of occasions. It is located in a little square and even the outside space feels peaceful. It is a beautiful church, fabulous architecture and always worth a visit
