The church is very welcoming and has recently celebrated 500 years!!!!!! It is situated in the heart of Mojacar pueblo (village). As such it is a bit of a walk to get there but well worth the visit.

In the centre of Mojacar Olde Town the church is stunning and very welcoming - a must visit. A beautiful bell tower tolling on the hour leads you through the little maze of streets to the chuch at the heart of the town.
