Travelling on the N332 between Calpe and Altea you can’t miss this impressive wooden structure with it’s shimmering dome on a bend just outside Altea - it’s so unexpected and if you don’t stop then you’ll always wonder what you missed! There’s a car park...More

We came across it almost by accident. Nevertheless it is very pretty and well maintained and worth a visit, if not to know a different culture, at least to look at a beautiful wooden church. Worth a stop.
