The santuario is well worth a visit, the organ is of particular interest, as the pipes are made from Alicante Marble, The staff there are able to play a pre programmed piece. The sound created is unbelievably haunting. Unfortunately the restaurant adjacent is really expensive,...More

Use some time to find this beautiful cathedral, it is worth it. The architecture is stunning, the view over the surroundings is beautiful. Use some time to study the details, there are a lot of them.

You can see this beautiful church from some way off as it stands majestically atop a hill. The road is narrow and winding for a short distance, but thankfully if you’re driving, there’s only one way up and another for coming down, so no awkward,...More

Nice scenery. The building is an interesting example of the style which Gaudí invented. But the student didn’t surpass the master.

Very poor signposting from Novelda so was difficult to find, but well worth it when we did by going up Paseo de los Molinos. One road up and another down. Parking at top before final short climb to Church. If disabled, car can be taken...More

Who knew that the church designed by Jose Sala Sala would be so beautiful. The stonework is outstanding. When you first see the back of the church, you think wow. Then you walk around and see the front. And Wow is not exciting enough. The...More

We went to the Tourist Information in the town and one of the things they recommended us to see was this church. It's a little drive outside town - about 2 - 3 miles. It's worth the extra trip. There is a one way up,...More
