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.

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

Not being a church religious person I was amazed at this stunning church. The architecture of this church is stunning and spectacular. They definitely don't build building or structures like these anymore. Worth visiting

Just a very old and beautiful Basillica, very easy to get to, and a must if you like old church's. The architecture is fabulous although the history is all in Spanish, i just looked up history on internet.

The church is often open to visitors and must be seen to be fully appreciated. The building is beautiful and it is in the most wonderful location.
