This sanctuary was built by a student of Gaudi.It took nearly 30 years to build and has a marble organ, unique in the world. It was built from the local stone and marble and stands next to the castle ruins of Novelda.

This takes some finding, as it's on a hill a few miles north-west of Novelda, and depending which way you arrive in town, you can easily miss the sign posts. It's worth persevering though as it's quite spectacular - on the outside anyway, the inside is disappointingly plain. It's said to have been inspired by Gaudi, but don't go expecting the scale and grandure of the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

Nice place to visit. They are building a new organ now.... and in the conning years. Church is in Gaudi style.
