“Tranquility personified”

Church of El Salvador
Ranked #5 of 58 things to do in Nerja
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This lovely church is am oasis within the hustle and bustle of busy nerja town. If you need a moment to chill and capture your thoughts, please visit this church. The architecture and interior are stunning, and why not pop into mass on a sunday morning where the televisions within the church display the text and speach in Englsh. if your planning a wedding abroad, please consider thsi location. One word of note is when you go into the church in the day, there is a local woman and her hubby who collect money within the doorway of the church. They give you the impression that they are colecting for the church but i am reliably informed they are nothing to do with the building and it is just an elaborate con.

My daughter married her in August 2013 and I could not imagine a more fitting location. The church is in the centre of the town and is a lovely location.which is very popular for weddings from all over europe.

very nice church, just right in the square, although its not open the whole day I was able to pray when the church is open in the morning or in the afternoon, many weddings come and go, the atmosphere in the church is so festive, but when you go in it is so quiet you can pray and you can feel the calm all around you

We visited the church while we were in Nerja and it is beautiful and so peaceful amongst its busy suroundings. We lit candles in memory of the people we have lost. We decided to go to Mass on the Saturday evening at 8.30 and it was lovely even though it was in Spanish. Worth a visit
