If you are looking for a little peacefulness in the middle of your hectic vacation, this is a good place to stop. The architecture on the outside is simple, but inside you have beautiful paintings, stained-glass, and architecture. Stop in relax and breathe in it's peace.

Attended a lovely service in Spanish on Sunday morning. Was very thankful for the fans throughout the Church as it was very warm.

Stunning architecture and atmosphere both outside in the beautiful square, one of my favourite places in Alicante, and inside. I love to come and sit there for a while and to watch people even during a mass even though I'm not religious. But it's lovely.

Beside a nice little all brick plaza, there is a coffee shop, is a pretty church, rebuilt, started as a mosque [that's the seaward side of the building as you face it.] Co-cathedral with S. Nicholas, that's another story, worth the visit even if it wasn't down hill from our apartment overlooking the beach. From Plaza del Mar up hill,... More

There is a great sense of peace here and it's great to leave the busy world aside for a a time to think and say a prayer. The church is beautifully decorated. Check opening hours on the Internet and to be sure ask again at hotel reception. We called a few times to find it closed.

Im not a lover of churches but this is worth a visit for the detail in the stonework alone and the plaza is a great place to have a coffee or ice cream and just relax
