Very Pretty church but sometimes there are beggars outside charging you an entrance fee but still well worth a visit....

A beautiful church with a number of side chapels.Entry is free though beggars may be at the door.The serene atmosphere is spoilt though by people using large cameras despite many signs asking you not to use them. A great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the resort.

It's a beautiful church in the Old Town of a patron of Benidorm. It's open to the public, but not at all the times, so you need to check before going there. Thera are ladies inside who sell holy souveniers. It's a small church, so the visit is very quick.

Definitely worth a visit. Absolutely beautiful church with amazing architecture. Took a few nice photos. Easy to get to also because it is right in the old town. Admission is free but people stand outside the door collecting. You can just go to look and don't have to take part in the service

Really beautiful church, when we walked in Ave Maria was playing, which made it even more spiritual, said a few prayers for our dear relatives who have passed (particularly poignant as our birthdays are around this time so we miss them even more), and had a few moments of peace. Just a minute away from Placa del castell where you... More

Atmosphere was so tranquil and restful, as many churches in Spain Italy and France. It was especially touching to see the crucifix on Maundy Thursday. A memory I will always treasure

A little oasis in the middle of Benidorm. They played Ave Maria as I walked in. Broke down and cried. I had just lost my mother, found peace. This moment meant a lot to me. Inside is beautiful, little statues here & there. Small but quaint. I will always remember, this little fishermen's church.

An iconic symbol of Benidorm with it's beautiful blue tiled dome. Nothing much to look at otherwise. In fact a rather drab building. The inside of the church is spectacular if access can be gained other than at service times. Seems to be almost permanently CLOSED. Very disappointing when the climb up to the church is all for nothing! RITA... More

The church is situated in the beautiful square at the top of old town. This means it is at the top of a steep hill or steps for anyone with walking difficulties, although a slightly less steep route can be taken through the narrow streets of old town. The views of both Levante and Poinente beaches are stunning from the... More
